City United Church Backpack Drive

It's time to go back to school shopping!

July 17 - August 14, 2022

This is a City Serve community outreach event. We will be collecting backpacks and the items listed below for kids in grades K5 through 12th grade in our local public schools. You can help us by purchasing a backpack and/or school supplies while you are out shopping. You can drop off your purchased items in the school bus on the Connect Side when you attend a gathering or you can drop them off at the church office during the week, Monday through Thursday between the hours of 8am - 4pm. If you'd rather have the church staff do the shopping, monetary donations may be placed in a giving envelope marked "other:backpacks" or through an online donation by noting "other:backpacks". Thanks for your help in serving our city!
