Interfaith Social Services
School Backpack Drive
Please consider donating a backpack full of school supplies to the ISS School Backpack Drive.
Although school is just getting out for the summer, Interfaith Social Services only has a short time to make sure that they will have enough backpacks to help all of the children who will visit the food pantry throughout the month of August when backpacks will be distributed.
ALL backpacks should include: spiral notebooks or composition notebooks, #2 pencils and 2- pocket folders,
For the grades K-5 ("Little kids") backpacks, we suggest including: washable markers, colored pencils, crayons, glue sticks
For the grades 6-12 ("Big kids") backpacks, please include: index cards, highlighters, a 2" three ring binder, a flash drive (2GB or greater) and pens (black or blue, no gel)
Please label each backpack "Little Kid" or Big Kid" to expedite the distribution process. Please make the labels large and easy to read.
If you can’t assemble a backpack full of school supplies please make a donation to help buy the supplies needed to put the back packs together. Checks should be made out to First Congregational Church of Braintree and write “ISS Backpack Drive” in the memo.
Please bring pre-packed backpacks to the church by Sunday, July 24th.
You can bring them with you to Summer Worship, or drop them in the church office Monday-Thursday 9-12.
