2017 Backpack & School Supply Drive


Why? Help us be a blessing to students in need this year by providing them with the supplies necessary to succeed. For many families, the start of the school year brings on a level of stress because of the costs associated with uniforms, school supplies, and other school-related expenses. Also, PG County has over 1,900 homeless unaccompanied youth in need of support and encouragement.  It's a simple gesture with lasting impact.  For more information please email zfwoutreach@zionchurchonline.com

Goal: Our goal is to collect and distribute at least 100 backpacks filled with school supplies to partnering schools and the PGCPS McKinney-Vento Program (MVP) for homeless unaccompanied youth on August 20th.

How You Can Help:

1) Click below to view each school level's supply list and print out that list.  

2) Purchase the backpack and supplies for that school level.

3) Return the backpack, filled with supplies, to our Fort Washington Campus any Sunday between now and August 13th.


Note: For lists printed from our website please pick up the school level's color tag to attach to the outside of the backpack at the Outreach Ministry's drop-off table.
