The Tools for School program helps low-income children and teens in our area to begin the school year on a positive note by providing each one of them with a backpack filled with the supplies for his/her school and grade. To meet this goal, we are asking for your help in collecting supplies and packing backpacks. This is a wonderful project for churches, organizations, businesses and anyone interested in helping young people in our community. The deadline to drop off donated supplies is Thursday, July 29. You may bring supplies to the Eastside office. Monetary donations are also gladly accepted. The cost of a backpack full of supplies is $45. Please make checks payable to ECM and mark it “Tools for School”. Supplies will be packed August 3 & 4. and distributed on Thursday, August 5 at the Zanesville Middle School on Blue Avenue. Individuals and groups interested in helping may call the ECM office at 740-452-7519.
