Back to School Jubilee

07.07.21 | Ways to Serve | For Pinellas | Give in Love

    Preparations are underway for the Back to School Jubilee on Saturday, August 7. Each year, with your help, we distribute school supplies, backpacks and more to pre-registered children in our community. This is a chance to cover the kids and families who attend with love and get them started out on the right foot for the school year. If you want to help with this year's Jubilee you can:


    We are still in need of the following supplies. New items are bolded:

    • Composition books – college ruled 
    • College ruled loose-leaf paper
    • 2 inch 3 ring binders 
    • Fat highlighters
    • Crayola colored markers
    • Dry erase markers

    You can drop off supplies for the Jubilee in the donation bin on Sunday or at the church office Mon-Thurs from 9 AM to 4 PM.

    Make a monetary donation. If you'd like to donate supplies but don't have time to shop for them, you can make a donation marked "Jubilee School Partnerships" and we will use your donation to buy supplies. You can give online, drop a donation in the offering boxes on Sunday, or send us a check (1498 Rosery Road NE. Largo, FL 33770).


    We need volunteers to help with Jubilee prep and set-up, and we especially need people for the day of the Jubilee on Saturday, August 7.
