School Supply Drive

Every kid deserves a backpack and a new box of crayons to start the school year. Help us support our Heart to Heart food pantry families by donating new backpacks filled with school supplies on Sunday, August 7. Look for marked bins where your donations can be dropped off.

If you are unable to attend worship services on August 7, supplies can be dropped off in the Crane Welcome Center at South and the Rose Wing lobby at North August 1-5 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Our goal is to collect 50 backpacks to distribute to Heart to Heart clients before school starts.

The most requested school supplies across the grades are as follows:

  • Crayons
  • Glue stick
  • #2 Pencils
  • Blue or black Pens
  • Ruler
  • Wide ruled notebook paper
  • 4 pocket folders
  • 4 spiral notebooks

Please remember that students Kindergarten through High School will be recipients of these donations. The schools we are serving have requested no disinfectant wipes be sent with school supplies this year.

And what does the Lord
require of you
But to do justice,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly
with your God?

Our vision of Heart to Heart is to model God’s love by:
Cultivating a loving community
Honoring individual gifts
Feeding bodies and souls
