School Supply Drive 2022
Concord St. Andrews Church will be collecting school supplies, back packs, and new underwear for needy children. We give the supplies to Interfaith Works whose families shop for free at their used clothing store in Rockville. Interfaith Works has a goal to collect and distribute 2,600 new backpacks filled with new school supplies for school aged children.
We will be collecting items through August 15th so they have time to gather, organize and distribute these items. (No lunch bags/boxes are needed because the children qualify for lunch programs at schools.)
Top Items Needed:
- 1” – 2” Binders
- Filler Lined Paper
- 2-Pocket Folders
- Blue and Black Pens
- Colored Pencils
- Pencil Pouches
Donors are also asked to consider purchasing a package of NEW underwear, to help the children start the new school year.
CSA has a collection box in the Narthex and another one in the Social Hall. If you would rather send a check, please make it out to CSA UMC and note: “School Supplies.” If you have any questions, please call the church office at (301) 229-3383 if you have questions.
