@ Calvary Baptist Church - Alton, IL
ALTON - We invite you to join us, as we seek to bring support to our community families as they look forward to the fall. Many children start the school year with little or no supplies. During the year many run out and can’t afford to replenish. The displaced family setting can also add to this great challenge. These same children show up in our teachers’ classrooms without the resources needed for learning. Your financial donations will go a long way to assist our Alton District # 11 teachers as they educate and nurture our children.
Calvary Cares, the heart of Calvary Baptist Church of Alton, will again show their love for our children and their teachers as they kick off this annual collection effort to raise monies for school supplies to support our teachers in the classrooms.
This year Calvary Cares again invites YOU, our community, to show how much YOU care.
Join us as we lead the way to ensure that our teachers will not need to reach into their own pockets. All funds raised for this effort will be used to purchase school supplies for our teachers’ distribution in their classrooms. We will purchase these supplies in case quantity and deliver them to our classroom teachers when school begins. All teachers will then distribute the school supplies to any child in their classroom that has needs.
