Featured This Week - School Supply Drive
Love God • Love People

The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did
for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.

Matthew 25:40

At the end of the summer, local schools signal it’s back-to-school time with school supply lists posted in stores throughout the community. Back-to-school time can be very exciting after a summer of relaxation and rejuvenation. However, for some students and their parents, it’s a time of anxiousness. Not everyone has the resources to purchase all the supplies on the list.

Every student deserves the opportunity to succeed. You can aid in this success by bringing in items from the School Supply List which will then be given to local elementary, middle and high schools as well as our Brookwood Families. Collection boxes are available in the Concourse, Children’s areas and South Campus from now–August 14.  

      “The school supply drive provides new supplies for students who come to school empty handed. Some students may be from foster care, live in poverty, or just have parents that are not as involved as others. These students can start the school year off on a positive note with new pencils, crayons, and other essential items. Some students even receive new book bags. This gives those students motivation and a fresh start to the new school year. It's also helps them to fit in. A crucial step to success in the classroom is feeling loved and cared for, as well as having the supplies they need. ”
