School Supply Project 2016

School Supply Project Drive

July 24 – August 7

The School Supply Project provides school supplies to the disadvantaged students in the Plano Independent School District. Through contributions of money and donations from CUMC, other churches, the business community, school groups, and individuals, supplies are provided for children in our area. The Assistance Center of Collin County will distribute 3000 backpacks to children identified as in need by social service agencies and school officials. The school supply project takes place every July/August…just in time for back-to-school. This project is committed to the belief that a positive self image is essential to the learning experience of the well educated child.
