Refugee Support Center School Supply Drive

June 28 - July 20

The Faith in Action Committees will be holding a virtual and in-person community school supply drive for the Refugee Support Center, a local non-profit that provides refugees with access to services and providers along with assistance with housing, immigration, legal matters and liaising with local schools. The majority of refugees served through RSC are from Burma but also from DR Congo, Rwanda, Syria, Afghanistan and Ukraine. A drive through collection will be held on Saturday, July 20 from 9-11am in the parking circle. You may also drop off supplies after services in the Library. We will be serving 350 Pre-K through Grade 12 students with the help of local congregations and community groups. Only new, unused supplies will be accepted. Needed supplies include:

Backpacks for elementary, middle and high school students • 1” and 3” Binders • Colored Pencils • Composition Books • Crayons • Dry Erase Markers • Erasers • Glue Sticks • Highlighters • Looseleaf Paper • Broad and Fine Tip Markers • Pencils • Pencil Pouches • Handheld Pencil Sharpeners • Pens • Rulers • Spiral Notebooks

A wish list has been created on Amazon for those who prefer to shop online https://amzn.to/4aHzbrJ. For Amazon shoppers, please choose “The Chapel of the Cross’s Gift Registry Address” at checkout and your supplies will be sent to COTC. The Amazon Wish List is also a good reference for in-store shopping.
