School Supply Drive 2022

Our 2022 School Supply Drive is underway, and there are three different ways to contribute to the drive this year.

1. Financially

You can mail in or drop off a check at Fourth Church (attn: Simon Crow), or make an online donation by clicking here—select “Congregational Life” and then note “School Supplies” in the comment box. (If contributing by check, please make the check payable to Fourth Presbyterian Church and write “School Supplies” on the memo line.)

2. Through donations of supplies.

You may purchase items and either drop them off at the church or have them shipped to the church (attn: Simon Crow). For a list of backpack needs by grade, click here; for a consolidated list of needed supplies, click here.

Supplies can also be purchased online and shipped to the church using the wish list www.bit.ly/fpcschoolsupplies22. Supplies are needed by Monday, July 25 for Summer Day students and by Monday, August 8 for Urban Farm students.

3. Through volunteering your time and energy!

We’ll be working to unpack, inventory, sort donations, and fill backpacks on the following days. RSVP to Simon Crow if you plan to volunteer.

  • Tuesday, July 26 (11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.)

New Opportunity: Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry is a new initiative of the Caring Ministries Team and the Knitting and Crocheting Group, combining the love of knitting and crocheting with a way to reach out to those in need of comfort and solace: providing them with a tangible expression of care in the form of a handcrafted shawl or lap blanket.

To learn more about this ministry opportunity, join the Knitting and Crocheting group for its next meeting, following worship on Sunday, May 22 (approximately 11:15 a.m.) in Room 5B. You may also sign up via VOMO to access basic instructions.
