Summer Mission! School Supplies for Cooper Community Center After School Program

BWUMC has had a long relationship with Cooper Community Center, a UMC sponsored service providing day care, afterschool care and other supportive services to children and families in the area.  For years we have done a gift project at Christmas. 

26 children grades K through 5 attend the Afterschool Program at Cooper Community Center in Roxbury.  Our summer mission is to collect $$ and items for a gift of back-to-school supplies for each child. 

Checks can be made out to BWUMC with ‘school supplies’ in the memo line

Items:  Please adhere to the list below.  A box for donations is in the Narthex.  

List of School Supplies

  •  Washable Markers (No fragrances, please)

  • Pencils

  • Pencil boxes

  • Erasers

  • Water bottles (No larger than 20 oz.)

  • Folders for loose papers – ‘Trappers’

  • NO BACKPACKS IN THIS BOX.  Backpacks will be purchased from $$ donations to be age and gender appropriate for each child.

New or used books in good condition for grades K – 5 will be packaged separately and given to the Center
