Opportunities to Help Children & Youth in a Big Way
DCC has always demonstrated itself to be a deeply generous congregation. This year, our generosity is needed more than ever. As school starts early this year, sign up right away to provide new backpacks stuffed with school supplies for children of homeless, formerly-homeless, and at-risk families now living in Shelter, Inc. and Contra Costa Interfaith Housing facilities who we want to help get a good start in school this year. New this year, we are also participating in Eden UCC’s drive for backpacks (empty) and individual donations of school supplies so the students in their Cherryland/Hayward neighborhood can choose a backpack and then fill it with school supplies at Eden’s Block Party & Backpack Giveaway on Saturday, August 3. (DCC guests are invited).
CCIH and Shelter, Inc.
Sign up at the Outreach table during fellowship time or contact Doug Leich.
Donations should be labeled according to the instructions and delivered to DCC by Sunday, July 28.
Sign up here to donate backpacks and other items to the Eden UCC backpack giveaway and deliver the items to DCC by Sunday, July 28.
Not a shopper?
- You can provide back-to-school clothes or shoes for a Shelter, Inc. or CCIH student by donating a $25-$50 Target or Kohl’s gift card. Turn those in to Doug or the church office.
- You can give online to Eden UCC’s backpacks drive. (Select Backpacks from the Fund menu.)
Thank you, in advance, for your generosity and role in helping these kids go to school with pride and all the things they need to be successful in school.
