It's almost back to school time!
An easy way to support local foster, adoptive and kinship families is by donating school supplies and backpacks!
BACK -TO-SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
We are partnering with TRUE GRACE CHURCH and the local community to collect school supplies for foster, adoptive and kinship families in the Thurston County area.
HOW IT WORKS
Grab a shopping list from the Compelled to Care table at True Grace Church during the gathering on Sunday, July 31st.
RETURN SUPPLIES BY SUNDAY, AUGUST 14TH to True Grace Church in Lacey at their Sunday 10am Gathering.
5615 30th Ave SE, Lacey, WA 98503
RETURN BY WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17TH to Evergreen Christian Community in Olympia in the church office.
M-Th: 8:30am-4:30pm & F: 8:30am-12:30pm. 1000 Black Lake Blvd SW Olympia, WA 98503
Use the Amazon Wish List to purchase supplies. One item we really needed last year was teen backpacks which is why we added a ton of JanSport backpacks to our wish list this year. You are also welcome to give funds directly to the school supply drive and we will purchase items for you.
SCHOOL SUPPLY GIVEAWAY, FRIDAY, AUGUST 19TH @ 6:00PM AT TRUE GRACE CHURCH
This event is for foster, adoptive and kinship families. All the school supplies will be organized so that parents can easily find the items listed on their supply lists and kids can pick-out a backpack that matches their individual style.
