Carol Stream Backpack Drive

Backpack Drive for Carol Stream Students

We have been invited to participate in a backpack drive to benefit underprivileged children in Carol Stream. We will collect school supplies, pack bags, and distribute them at a local apartment complex. 

Each week you will find a bin near the Connect table to deposit school supplies. This bin will be out each Sunday in July. If you prefer, you can also purchase school supplies through our Amazon Wish List, linked below, or make a monetary donation using the button at the top of the page.

The backpack packing party will take place on Monday, July 31 at 6 pm. Backpack distribution will be on Thursday, August 3 at 11 am.

We are delighted to again be participating in Carol Stream’s National Night Out. VCE will have a table set up with activities for the children who attend. Our goal is to make connections in our community and show them the love of Jesus! Those interested in volunteering can sign up below, or see Rene Gutierez.
