As of August 7th, thanks to everyone's generosity, our church collected almost 50 backpacks, $1,150 cash, and about $600-800 worth of back to school supplies. 

These school supplies and backpacks go to the formerly homeless children who live at facilities sponsored by Contra Costa Interfaith Housing. CCIH provides formerly homeless families with service enriched programs that help stabilize the families, while the children receive help through the very successful Homework Clubs. The children need to have the school supplies to be ready to learn when school starts and that is where we, a partner congregation of CCIH, come in!
