THERE ARE THREE WAYS YOU CAN HELP:
  • Donate school supplies which Community Outreach will distribute to schools and other ministries.

  • Visit our virtual back-to-school store and choose items to fund from a list curated by the schools themselves.

  • Donate to Perimeter’s back-to-school initiative, and  we will do the shopping for you!


Community Outreach Staff will be available at the exits on Sundays now through August 16 to answer any questions you may have about ways to give through our virtual school store, or to receive your donations.



DON’T HAVE TIME TO SHOP? VISIT OUR VIRTUAL STORE!

You can make a donation online or at all entrances
Sundays, 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM




If the items you select are fully funded we may use your donation to help fill other critical needs for helping to prepare our schools and families to go back to school.


All Summer | Host A Back-to-School Supply or Basic Needs Drive

There are many items that children need to be prepared as they begin a new school year and some of the most important ones are items you don’t even think of. Many children just need the basics: socks, shoes, underwear, personal hygiene items, feminine hygiene products, and school supplies. These are just a few items that most of us provide automatically for our own children. As we build deeper relationships in our community through love and service, we can have deeper conversations about the real needs of our children. Get your kids involved and start collecting these items throughout the summer. Invite your friends, neighbors, and co-workers to join you in helping our kids be ready to go back to school.


July 5 – August 10 | Back-to-School Supply Drive

GRAB A YELLOW BAG as you’re leaving the church and bring it back-filled with supplies from our list. Donation bins for collecting the bags will be outside church exits on Sundays, July 5 - August 10. Don’t have time to shop? Make a monetary donation below.


July 5 – August 10 | Virtual School Store

This year, Community Outreach is offering a virtual store! See the list above of what teachers and schools in our cities need most and the cost to supply them. Then choose what items you want to fund and make a donation to cover the cost. It’s that simple! Your chosen items will be shipped directly to the area school that needs them!
