Back to school after summer vacation – what an exciting time for children as they look forward to their new classes, seeing friends, and shopping for school supplies! This is also a difficult time for many children in our community.

Did you know that in Monterey County:

  • There are over 5,000 homeless students?
  • More than one quarter of children live in poverty?
  • Nearly 70% of students qualify and are enrolled in the Free/Reduced Price Meal Program?
    (Based on the 2010-11 school year, the latest for which data is available)

We are partnering with Target to help the Seaside and Salinas Boys & Girls Clubs help children in need of backpacks in Monterey County by supplying them with backpacks filled with school supplies. We believe every child deserves to go to school prepared to learn! Our hope is that the children will see the love of God in us as we help them and will want to learn more about that love.

Our drive begins July 6th and will continue until July 27th.

We need donations of:
            1. Backpacks (no red or blue)

            2. Safe Scissors

            3. 3 Ring Binders/Loose Leaf Paper

            4. Colored Pencils/Crayons

            5. Composition Books

            6. Glue/Glue sticks

            7. Erasers/Pencil Sharpeners

            8. Rulers/Calculators

            9. Pencils/Pens

           10. Pocket Folders/5 Tab Dividers

           11. Construction Paper/Yellow Highlighter

           12. Pocket Dictionary

Look for the Backpack Drive barrels around Shoreline Community Church. Or you can make an online donation here. Thank you for participating in this opportunity to help children succeed in school and for meeting a crucial need in our community!

If you would like to help assemble the backpacks and hand them out to the children at the Boys & Girls Clubs, join us on July 29th from 3:30-5:30p at the Boys & Girls Clubs in Seaside and Salinas.

Community Outreach Backpack And School Supply Drive

On June 13, 2012, in Community Outreach, by CommunityOutreach

Back to school after summer vacation – what an exciting time for children as they look forward to their new classes, seeing friends and shopping for school supplies! Yet this is also a difficult time for many children in our community…Did you know that in Monterey County:

  • There are over 3,500 homeless students?
  • More than one quarter of children live in poverty?
  • Nearly 70% of students qualify and are enrolled in the Free/Reduced Price Meal Program?
    (Based on the 2010-11 school year, the latest for which data is available)

Shoreline Community Church’s Annual Backpack and School Supply Drive is an annual event, aimed to assist the county in supplying children in need with backpacks filled with supplies. We believe every child deserves to go to school prepared to learn! So many of these children face obstacles to their education and development and their families simply cannot afford basic school supplies.

You can help!!! Will you partner with us to serve these children in need? Our drive begins July 1st and will continue until July 29th. We need donations of:

  • Backpacks
  • Binders, Filler Paper and Composition Books
  • Crayons, Pencils, Markers and Pens
  • Glue Sticks and Scissors (kid-safe)
  • Calculators and other supplies that will help our children go back to school, confident that they can do their best without having to worry about not having what they need

Look for the Backpack Drive barrels around Shoreline Community Church. Thank you for participating in this opportunity to help children succeed in school and for meeting a crucial need in our community!

If you would like to help put the backpacks together, fellowship and have a good time, join us on August 4th, from 9a-12p in the Pacific Room at Shoreline.

If you have any questions, please contact Timothy & Kathy Hobbs at backpacks@shorelinechurch.org.

Community Outreach News 05.26.11

On May 26, 2011, in Community Outreach, by CommunityOutreach

Take time to appreciate the wonders God has created for us!

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

  • Monterey pines and Windsor Convalescent Visits, May 21st
    We wanted to thank all or you for giving your time and heart to be with the residents last Saturday. Sharing the word of Jesus, listening to their stories and just loving on them, brings such joy into their lives. God has sent angels in the form of all of you!
  • CHOMP Blood Drive, May 22nd
    To those of you that donated blood we want to THANK YOU. It can be a difficult thing to do and you all gave with your heart. God has blessed us with you and you have bless someone with your blood.

FOOD DONATIONS
“Thank you” to all of you who have donated food, we really appreciate it! You have helped feed over 400 people this month. If you can donate, our needs are: dried beans and rice (we are totally out of these), soup, canned vegetables, canned fruits, canned chicken, beef stew, canned tuna, pasta and pasta sauce.

WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS WEEKEND:

  • I-Help, Friday May 27th & Saturday May 28th
    Friday night we will be giving the men food, clothing, a place to sleep and of course sharing Jesus with them. Saturday we will be preparing them breakfast and a sack lunch to take with them. Please pray that in touching their lives we can help them to know Jesus Christ.

WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS MONTH:


  • Annual Backpack and School Supply Drive, Now thru June
    Our backpack drive has begun and the need has increased. Every child deserves to go to school prepared to learn, so let’s do our part to make that happen. Please place your donated items in the barrels. Thank you to Lisa Pray who volunteered
    to be the coordinator of this project. If you would like to help her out, please give us a call.

WHAT’S HAPPENING NEXT MONTH:

  • “Get on the Bus”, June 18th
    We will be sponsoring a bus of children that will be going to Soledad Prison to visit their Dad’s for Father’s Day. It will be our responsibility to supply them with a “stay connected bag” with things in it such as disposable cameras, pens, boxes of note cards with envelopes, construction paper, boxes of crayons, postage stamps,etc. These things will be used to help the kids stay connected to their Dad’s by allowing them to send them letters, pictures, handmade cards and such. These children have a difficult life and we are so glad that God has given us the opportunity to give them some love.

Pick up your June 2011 calendar at the Community Outreach Booth to find out all that’s happening next month!

If you have any questions or would like more information about any of the above listed events, or any other Community Outreach activities, please stop by the Booth this Sunday , shoot us an email, or call us at the church.
