Congregation Liaison: Outreach and Servant Ministries Committee

Congregations for Kids helps students from low income families in the Bellevue School District get a good start back to school by through donations of new backpacks and school supplies. This helps students begin school with some of tools needed to be successful.

Each summer, the congregation supports this effort.

Current Opportunities: 2022

The school district has asked for 3,649 backpacks this year, up 80% from 2021.
It costs $18.44 for elementary backpacks, $21.15 for middle school, and $18.70 for high school students.
Congregations for Kids saves money by purchasing the backpacks and supplies in bulk.
To help with this year’s project, please write a check to Saint Andrew’s and put “Congregations for Kids” on the memo line.
