Deacons Annual School Supply Drive 2022

The Deacons will be collecting school supplies for Running Brook Elementary School, Bridges to Housing Stability and Luminus Network for New Americans (formerly FIRN) this year. Due to COVID-19, we will have a hybrid collection again this year – a combination of drive-up and in-person. We are planning to hold a drive-up collection of school supplies and/or cash donations on two consecutive Saturdays in August.

The Deacons will have a tent set up in the church parking lot
from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays, August 6 and 13.

PLEASE drive up to the tent for a low-contact donation. Drive up, pop your trunk and we will grab the donations. If you wish to make a cash donation to enable the Deacons to shop for school supplies and can’t come out, please donate through the church and mark your donation clearly for “School Supplies/Deacons.”

If you can’t make it on August 6th or August 13th, or you are attending an in-person church service, please feel free to bring your donations and drop them in the bin marked “School Supplies” outside the kitchen door through Sunday, August 21st.
