Back to School Donations

Back 2 School Alliance (BTSA) is a group of volunteers and community partners dedicated to supporting students in need.  Since 1999, they have been working hand in hand with Bloomington District 87, Normal Unit 5, and Illinois Prairie Community Foundation to bring students and community together by putting backpacks and school supplies into the hands of the children who need them most.

The Missions Committee will be collecting school supplies during the month of May. Why now when school is almost over? Well, they need supplies for close to 6000 students and it takes time to sort, pack and prepare these supplies for distribution.

They will accept all school supplies but here is what is needed the most:

      • Backpacks
      • Pencils 
      • Pens 
      • Erasers
      • Composition notebooks
      • 16-32 crayon packs
      • Markers
      • White board markers

You can drop off your donations anytime in May in the big red tub under the Missions Committee bulletin board. We will have a hands-on mission moment the last Sunday in May. Stay tuned for more details on this fellowship-mission project.
