YOU BELONG: TO IMPACT
BACK TO SCHOOL EXTRAVAGANZA Each year we partner with Washington Township schools as they kick off a new academic year. We work closely with their teachers and administrators to find the BEST way we can support the school district, while at the same time upholding our shared commitment to justice, anti-racism, and inclusivity. This year, we have a goal to raise $50,000 to cover the cost of school supplies for 4,200 students for the entire academic year, adopt classrooms in Washington Township, and adopt a school in Kenya. To learn more and give, visit stlukesumc.com/backtoschool.
