School Supplies Drive

Let’s come together as we keep our distance! Your Outreach Committee is holding a school supplies drive supporting one of our Servant Ministry Partners, Living Grace Memphis. Their clients are the city's most vulnerable populations – children who are underserved and experiencing homelessness.

Thanks to all who have donated thus far, but we are still in need of supplies. Baskets will be inside during morning worship and outside during our More Than a Meal (MTAM) event on Sunday, August 2, from 2:30-4:30 p.m. This week you can take advantage of Tennessee’s Tax Holiday (July 31-August 2) for school supplies! Critical needs are listed below.

We’re also looking for volunteers: two during MTAM to receive donations, give a hearty thank you, and carry/sort the donated items inside; 12 volunteers to help pack supplies on August 15 in Trezevant Hall from 10-12. You may sign up by emailing outreach [at] gracestlukes [dot] org

Questions can be directed to the event captains Edith Heller (hrheller3 at and Carol Ann Mallory (cam2269 at or the Outreach email.
Thanks for your support!
