Join us to provide school supplies for students at Community of Hope!

What: As schools prepare to reopen this fall, we want to help students served by our close partner organization, Community of Hope get a head start with the proper school supplies they need.

We’re recruiting volunteers to create backpacks filled with the essential items students need to be successful! These backpacks will go directly to Community of Hope’s housing and healthcare clients. Scroll down to view the full shopping list.

Where: Gather the materials, put the backpacks together at home, and then simply drop them off at the EDCJCC.

When: This project is ongoing from July 11th through July 28th. All backpacks dropped off at the EDCJCC during this timeframe will be delivered to Community of Hope.

Registration: Please register for this event to receive instructions on backpack packing and drop-off.
