October’s Collection Sunday

As a reminder, the Outreach Committee has decided to move our monthly collection day to the second Sunday of each month.

Next Collection Sunday is October 9

Our Focus: Dalewood Middle School

In 2018, the PTA of Dalewood Middle School began seeking community partners that would support their students, either financially or by showing up for events. A Christ Church parishioner alerted us to this need, and we’ve been involved since then. We’ve purchased uniforms and school supplies for children of low-income families, snacks for students taking achievement tests, items needed for the school emergency closet, plus a few special requests for the staff.

This year, Dalewood has asked us to help restock their empty emergency closet with uniform clothes and laundry detergent. If you want to help, keep in mind that buying new clothes is not the only option. Shopping at thrift stores, or bringing something still serviceable that you or your kids have outgrown, will help us fill Dalewood’s empty shelves. 

Dalewood students wear pants, polo shirts, and sweatshirts. They are in grades 6-8 and are 11-14 years old. 

Pants: khaki or navy 

  • Boys size 16, 18, 20; Mens size 28, 30, 32 with inseams 30 or 32 for all sizes
  • Junior girls odd sizes 3 through 15; girls size 14, 16, 18

Polos and Sweatshirts: white, gray, red, navy, light blue, or black

  • Sizes S, M, L, XL for boys and girls

Other requested items: 

  • Liquid laundry detergent, unscented preferable – (Dalewood has laundry facilities on-site for families to use)
  • Women’s underwear 3, 5, 7, 9
  • Sports bras: S, M, L, XL

We are grateful for your help!
