Back-to-School Supplies Drive

Returning to school is exciting for children and youth, but expenses such as new clothes, registration, and programming fees can put a strain on family budgets. Every year, Eastern Area Community Ministries collects school supplies to help ease that burden on our local families. Scroll down for a complete supply list.

Drop off through Monday, July 15

Donated school supplies can be dropped off July 8-15 at the EACM office – 9104 Westport Rd. in the lower level of John Knox Presbyterian Church.

EACM calculates the total value of the donated items, so please include a receipt (or copy) with your donation. That’s a HUGE help to the staff and volunteers.

We also need volunteers for this event:

  • July 15-17 - sorting and counting supplies at the EACM office
  • Thurs, July 18 - stuff backpacks and help set up at Westport Middle School

If you would like volunteer or need additional information, please contact Shiny Varughese at 502-426-2824 ext. 306.
