Back to School Supply Drive

City Life, Service

BACK-TO-SCHOOL-BANNERAs a follow up to our Serve the City event on July 20th, we are partnering with Dunlap Elementary School again by hosting a Back to School Drive through September 1st! As a church, we believe that we’ve been infinitely loved and served by God, through the person and work of Jesus. Because of that, we believe the good news of the Gospel is not only shared in word, but demonstrated in deed.

Dunlap Elementary is one of the most culturally diverse and impoverished elementary schools in our region, serving subsidized or free lunches for over 85% of the students. On September 4th, Dunlap Elementary will start a new school year and many students will show up on the first day of class with little or no school supplies.

Who:

Anyone and everyone can provide donations*.

What:

We’re in need of these items this week.

When:

September 1st is the last Sunday to drop off the supplies, but the sooner the better!

Where:

We’ll have designated barrels set up during our church gathering on Sundays.

Why:

Serving is a tangible expression of the Gospel of Jesus Christ – serving as we’ve been served, in Christ.

*Please do not wrap donations or take them out of their original packaging. We are creating a store of supplies for the teachers, who will then divvy out supplies as needed.

Email info@downtowncornerstone.org for any additional questions!

We’re excited to see how God will use this for His glory!
