Contra Costa Interfaith Housing (CCIH) is collecting more than 150 backpacks filled with school supplies to ensure the academic success of low-income students. Many CCIH students do not have the resources needed to buy required school supplies every year and it is
CCIH’s goal that every student in their homework clubs will feel ready and inspired to tackle the school year with the resources needed to succeed. CCIH is working with 91 children in elementary school, 53 in middle school and 18 in high school that are in need of supplies. If you, your congregation, or group is able to contribute backpacks and supplies please visit the wish list here. All items are due on or before August 11 and can be delivered at 399 Taylor Blvd #115 in Pleasant Hill. (Parking is off Lucille Lane). Please call Gloria Bertolozzi at (925) 944-2244, ext. 114, before making delivery. Your generosity and involvement would be very much appreciated.
