Blessings in a Backpack

This past July, Zion Lutheran and COR collected backpacks and school supplies for local children.

Thank you to all who donated and contributed to this wonderful cause!

Let’s help a child start the school year feeling confident and prepared.

Throughout July we are seeking contributions of sturdy plain colored backpacks for older students and styles suitable for those in the primary grades.

Volunteers at the Oxford Ecumenical Food Shelf will fill them with the supplies requested by their teachers.

Items requested for elementary pupils are: markers, glue sticks, scissors, colored pencils, crayons, pocket folders and dry erase markers.

Needs for secondary pupils include: 3 subject notebooks, binders, filler paper, composition books, pens, red pens, pencil sharpeners and highlighters.

Families that are struggling to outfit their children with clothes and shoes for school are deeply appreciative to have assistance with ever increasing school supply lists.
