Monthly Mission: July 2014 – Back To School Supply Drive

Are you ready for the Annual Back to School Supplies Drive? We are!

We will be meeting at the community center on the corner of West Society Ave. & North Davis St., distributing much needed school supplies and backpacks for the kids who live in the McIntosh & OB Hines Housing Authority areas. We are raising and distributing supplies for all grade levels – elementary, middle and high school – based on the Dougherty County School System supplies lists that are distributed to Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target, etc.

We will be collecting items from now until the day of the event, so if you plan to give, please email Sarah ( or Val ( to make arrangements for dropping off your donated items at our office @ 308 Flint Ave. (across the street from First United Methodist Church).

Note: While we need to collect all items on the following list, our high school students last year were most in need of: 2 inch 3 ring binders; wide ruled & college ruled paper; black and white journals; and 1 subject notebooks.

Needed Items:

  • Wide Ruled Notebook Paper
  • College Ruled Notebook Paper
  • Graph Paper
  • 3 Prong Folders with Pockets (red / yellow / blue / green)
  • #2 Pencils
  • Markers
  • Crayons
  • Colored Pencils
  • Rulers
  • Highlighters
  • Red Pens
  • 2 inch 3 Ring Binders
  • Black & White Journals
  • 1 Subject Spiral Notebooks
  • Backpacks


Please be at the center at 9am to gather items, separate them into grade levels, package the backpacks with supplies, and be ready to get to know our kids one on one!

Partnering with the Albany Housing Authority has allowed us to have a block/ park party during this event.  So feel free to bring any games, side walk chalk, a roll of white butcher paper for the kids to draw on, markers, crayons, bubbles, etc that might entertain the kids as they wait to enter into the community center.

We thank you in advance for making this an awesome day for everyone involved, and for ensuring that all of our kids are well prepared for the new school year!
