Saint Thomas’ is again participating in the Christian Community Service Center’s Back to School Program. Your donations last year helped serve 6546 kids in the 2012 program. CCSC’s greatest need for this program is financial backing. It only costs $45 to provide each child with a comprehensive packet of academic supplies and new clothing/shoes in line with each campus’s uniform requirements. We would love to be able to sponsor at least 6 students this year. To make a monetary donation, you may drop a check in the offering plate, mail it to the church, or drop it by the church office. Please make checks out to St. Thomas’ Episcopal, and write CCSC in the memo line. All St. Thomas’ Parishioners (9 years and up) are also invited to help distribute school supplies including backpacks, school uniforms and gently used shoes to underprivileged children and their families. We would like to thank last year’s participants, seen below, for helping make the Back to School Program a huge success! Please join us from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., on Saturday, August 3, as we help to serve more than 6,000 children in the surrounding community.
