This is the time of year when we provide an opportunity to donate backpacks and school supplies for area students who may be able to use a little eXtra assistance in preparing to return to class. This year, the Waterloo campus is blessing elementary-aged students who are in the foster care system through Restore Network and at-risk high school students who attend high school at CCSI in Red Bud. In Jerseyville, we're blessing new teachers and staff through the Jersey County Business Association (JCBA) and Jerseyville area students through Got Faith? Ministries' bus collection program.

Due to CDC guidelines that discourage the passing of items from one place to another, we are offering more hands-free options to purchase donations online using Amazon's wishlist feature. See below on how to donate to each organization or click the links below to donate school supplies online. Donations are due by Sunday, August 1!
