Donate items through your participating congregation or organization during the Good Start Back To School drive 
Only 2 items Needed/Requested This Year- 2023
(All donated items should be new)

* Sturdy Backpacks for all grade levels, no slings or wheels; padded backs for 4th through high school; large size for middle and high school, with laptop compartments; solid colors (no red) for HS.

* Monetary Donations.  We purchased school supplies for home use for all grade levels, kindergarten through high school.  Students may obtain those in their school FCCs.
Twenty-five cases of backpacks were purchased to supplement backpack donations.  Average cost of backpacks is $7.25, elementary; $8.50, middle school; and $15, high school. 
Monetary donations help cover the cost of the supplies, as well as the many cases of backpacks that are purchased.

Checks may be made out to your congregation/organization and clearly marked "Back to School" or "Congregations for Kids" or made out directly to "Congregations for Kids/EISCC."  Either give checks to your congregation/organization's contact person for C4K or mail them to the address on the "Donate" page.  Donations may also be made online; see "Donate" page.

Thank you for your help.
