Back2School Supply Drive
Faith Promise Church’s Annual School Supplies Drive is BACK!
With a new school year just around the corner, we need your help! We are partnering with 2 awesome local ministries to help get the school year off to a great start for children in at-risk environments. The 2 ministries are Water Angels and Emerald Youth Foundation. Please read below to see how you can help with resources and volunteering. You can order online from Amazon for delivery directly to the Emerald Academy, or you can purchase and bring in supplies to the Pellissippi Campus on the dates listed below. Thank you so much for your generosity and heart of compassion!
*New Backpacks*, Glue Sticks, Rulers, Highlighters, Note Cards, Pencils, Crayons, Scissors, and 3 Ring Bingers
Give a child a fresh start at school.
This year the Pellissippi Campus will be donating schools supplies to Water Angels Ministry for homeless and at-risk children.
Collection Dates: Saturday/Sunday, July 25th/26th and Saturday/Sunday, August 1st/2nd in the lobby at PEL
This year Water Angel Ministries will host their 10th annual block party on Saturday, August 8th from 10 AM to 2 PM.
If your group would like to sign-up to serve to be a part of the Annual Back to School Block Party at Water Angels, email Season Henry at [email protected]
This year we have also been given the opportunity to partner with the new Emerald Academy.
About 93% of their scholars are from Knoxville’s inner city neighborhoods.
You can see and hear from some of them here.
Emerald Academy is in the process of collecting school supplies that will help their scholars and teachers. They have tried to make it easy for folks by setting up several different ways it could work, and you can check those out here.
As with most things, Emerald Academy is on a short timeline as the first day of school is actually on July 27!
Thank you and if you have any questions please email ([email protected]) or call us (865-251-2590 x1408) .
