School Supply Drive & Blessing of the Backpacks
Southminster is working with Chesterfield County Community Support Services to collect school supplies for special needs students from low income families. This year we have 78 children who will need to be outfitted with the tools to learn.
We will be collecting school supplies through Sunday, August 19th. Below you will find a list of commonly needed items. Monetary donations to the School Supply Fund are also always welcome.
On Sunday, August 26th we will have the Blessing of the Backpacks during worship. We invite the congregation to stay after the service to help pack the supplies.
