3rd Annual Bookbag Drive

July 1 @ 8:00 am - August 18 @ 5:00 pm

3rd Annual Book Bag Drive


Donations will be Collected and Delivered to local schools before the School Year starts August 23rd

It is almost the end of Summer which means it’s almost time for school!  There are many children who need our help this year more than ever.  Please refer to the list below for donations which can be dropped off during normal business hours or on Sunday morning in the Donations bin across from the Office.  The Book Bag Drive will run until August 18th.  The bookbags will be assembled and delivered to the 3 schools we are helping this year.

Where do our donations go?

We deliver the donations collected to local schools in Chesterfield that have children in need of supplies, to help those parents who are in financial hardships and otherwise unable to buy the sometimes overwhelming school supplies list for their elementary aged children.  See what the schools said from last year’s bookbag drive where because of YOUR donations and gifts we were able to distribute over 200 bookbags to help children start the school year off on the right foot:

“Having supplies readily available helps take the financial pressure away from families who are struggling on a daily basis…We are grateful for our partnership and look forward to continuing the important work with you this year.”  – Principal Kristin Saady Hening Elementary School
“We are so unbelievably grateful for the school supply drive that you all do for our Ecoff students annually…We are able to collect the supplies and bring the supplies out into our most needy neighbors.  The children get to “shop” for their supplies and then come to school on the first day with SO much confidence.” 
– Principal Kristin Tait, Ecoff Elementary School
“Your church has been a true blessing to our school community…Your kindness and generosity is what helps to not only support public schools, but it is a prime example for us to follow as we prepare our students for the future…It truly takes a village to raise children to become amazing adults.  We are so thankful you are a part of our village.” -Principal Natasha Wade Salem Church Elementary

What can I do to help?

We have compiled a list from the school supplies list, for a complete list of the items needed, click here.  Find something you want to donate and sign up on our form here to let us know what donation you will be able to help out with.  Then bring your items to the Church either on Sunday morning or during the week Monday – Friday 9am-4:30pm and drop them off in the donations box in the lobby.  Need help bringing everything in?  Call ahead (804)796-6868 so we can be there to help you, help the children of our community!
