ISS Backpack Drive
Help local students start off on the right foot in September
The ISS food pantry serves about 500 school-age children each month. Every August they distribute backpacks full of school supplies to every child whose parents are food pantry clients. This initiative emphasizes the importance of education, defrays an additional cost faced by clients, and helps kids start the year right.
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 23rd.
You can bring them with you to Summer Worship, or drop them in the church office Mon-Thu 9-12.
Contact Grace Reinelt with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org s 617-770-3687.
