Collecting Backpacks for Corley Elementary School

The children of Corley Elementary will head back to school soon, and even though their days spent inside of the school may be staggered to stay within social distancing guidelines, they will need two-strap backpacks! That means, UUCG is here to help.

Now through August 5th, UUCG is collecting backpacks for the students of Corley Elementary School.

Ways to give:

  • Donate a two-strap backpack – For this year’s drive, we need new and gently used two-strap backpacks. (Remove the name of the previous owner so that the recipient child can own it.) Look for the Corley Backpack Bin located outside the front doors of the church building.
  • Drop off cash or checks at UUCG before August 5, 2020.
  • Mail a check to UUCG with ‘Corley Elementary School Backpack Drive’ in the memo line.
  • Send money via Venmo with the note ‘Corley Elementary School Backpack Drive.’
  • If you live in the immediate area, call UUCG and someone will arrange to pick up the two-strap backpacks or money from your home.

And if you spot any bargains out there, let us know!

Our church has been a supporter of this community school since 2011 through our Christmas Gift Card Drive, the Backpack Drive, and also with teacher appreciation events. The school has shown its gratitude for our dedication, and our relationship is a strong one.

If you can, please contribute to help keep the bond strong.
