Paradise Valley United Methodist Church’s Ignite Modern Worship community is collecting school supplies for low-income children and families served by the Wesley Community Center. The Wesley Community and Health Centers (Wesley) help provide families with backpacks and school supplies to give children the tools they need to start school prepared to succeed. Here’s how you can help.
Ways to support Wesley’s Annual Back-to-School Drive
1) Donate needed items from the list below and place them in the boxes at the Ignite worship service any Sunday at 11 am in the chapel. The church office will also have a box for your donations. Please drop off your items no later than Sunday, June 23, 2019. Ignite is planning a backpack packing event on June 26, 2019. More information on that later.
2) If you would like to make an online donation, you can do so by visiting the Amazon wish list. To send these directly to Wesley, see the addresses below.
3) You can “drop off” items at either of Wesley’s two Phoenix locations before the drive ends on July 28, 2019:
1300 S. 10th St. Phoenix, AZ 85034 OR 1625 N. 39th Ave Phoenix, AZ 85009
Volunteers will take all the donations dropped off at the church to Wesley before June 23, 2019.
