BACK TO SCHOOL PROJECT Our goal this year is 50 backpacks with school supplies. UCC and Outreach board is once again partnering with Dellrose United Methodist church to collect and distribute school supplies and backpacks for the 2016-2017 school year. In addition to the school supplies, families also have to pay for textbook rental. The textbook fee for
Kindergarten is $22 and $37 for grades 1-5.

We are asking for donations of school supplies, backpacks, & textbook fees. You are welcome to shop for the supplies listed on the PIC board (available July 10) or send a check to the church and write “Back to School” on the memo line and we will purchase the items for you. The distribution date will be Sunday, August 14, at Dellrose UMC. All supplies & checks will need to be at UCC by Sunday, Aug. 7, in order for us to purchase the items and
deliver them to Dellrose UMC. The Outreach board will take part in the distribution of the Back to School supplies and will report back to you with how you helped these children. If any of you would like to volunteer at the time of distribution, please see Rod Phares or Cyndi Richter. You can make a real difference in a child as they head back to school with the items they need.
