COVID-19 might make it feel like everything’s on hold. But even as kids go back to school virtually, they’re going to need supplies to be at their best throughout the year. This year Ivy Chapel United Church of Christ is teaming up with Isaiah 58 Ministries’ back-to-school fundraiser.

Isaiah 58 is requesting 150 boxes of washable markers, assorted packages/izes of girls’ and boys’ underwear, and socks. Store gift cards are welcome, too.

Questions about donating? Email us or call 314-434-4991.

Contributing is as easy as 1-2-3!

  1. Donate in person. Purchase items and drop them off in the box at Ivy Chapel anytime before August 15.
  2. Donate online. Click here to donate. Select from the suggested “Amazon wish list.” These items will be delivered to Isaiah 58 before school starts. The deadline for purchases is August 10. Feel free to share the link with family and friends as well.
  3. Donate funds. Don’t want to shop but still want to support the cause? We’ll do the shopping for you. Email us or call the church office at 314-434-4991 for information.

Supporting Isaiah 58 Ministries

Here at Ivy Chapel United Church of Christ, we are proud of the longstanding relationships we have had with the organizations we support. We’re also proud to announce a newer partnership, with Isaiah 58 Ministries.

As you consider how you will support Isaiah 58 Ministries it is helpful to know that because of their partnerships with St. Louis Area Foodbank and Operation Food Search your giving dollars can be stretched. Donations of canned and box foods are always appreciated, but it also good to know that financial contributions are also welcome.  As a Tier One partner with the Foodbank, Isaiah 58 is able to purchase food for 10 cents a pound. For example an average box of cereal costs $4.00. If you donate the $4.00 directly to their ministry Isaiah 58 can purchase approximately 40 comparable boxes of cereal through the food bank, allowing them to feed even more families.

Visit the Isaiah 58 ministries website to learn more about this organization.

If you’d like to contribute through Ivy Chapel, or if you would like to learn more about how we work with Isaiah 58 and other local organizations, please feel free to reach out to us.
