Make a Difference in the Life of a Child

School Supply Drive

Do you remember the excitement of getting new school supplies each year and anticipating how you’ll use them to learn? In the St. Louis area there are 90,000 children that cannot afford basic school supplies, and our church is committed to empowering 275 of them. Make a difference in the community by donating school supplies for St. Louis children. Scan the code for an online shopping list that will ship directly to Salem or pick up a tag in the lobby after worship. Please drop off your donations by Sunday, July 31.
