ONLY TWO WEEKS LEFT TO BEFORE THE END OF OUR SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE.
How are you going to help our church neighborhood children start the school year with the supplies they need?
School supplies and money donations have started to be received but not much time is left to be able to participate in providing the school supplies that the children at Garfield, Crestwood and Lynbrook schools and clients of ECHO will need.
Sunday, August 7 is the last day to donate the school supplies and the funds for us to purchase supplies. The supplies that are most needed now for these elementary school children are backpacks and items that we usually didn't traditionally consider school supplies but are needed now in addition to the usual ones - inexpensive head phones, tissues, pump type hand sanitizers, gallon and quart zip lock bags and sanitizer wipes. Checks can be donated - payable to St. Christopher’s with School supply Drive on the memo line.
We still need volunteers to help on Thursday evening August 10th at 7:00 pm to pack up the supplies, people to be available to come on Friday at 10 am if the packing up was not completed on Thursday evening, and another person to deliver the supplies to one of the schools.
You can go on our new Sign up Genius to...Volunteer or stop at the "Sign up Table" on Sunday, or call or email Lynn Knox - 703-451-6450, or email@example.com.
