August Outreach

Distribution date is August 28th

The child receiving the supplies must be present this day.

A School Supplies Distribution, to the neighboring community, is being spearheaded by Circle 8, the Nurses’ Ministry and the Pastor’s Nurses.  Members of Shiloh Baptist Church are asked to donate two complete backpacks of school supplies for distribution on Saturday, August 28, 2021.  Please include all items from either the Secondary School Supplies’ list or the Elementary School Supplies’ List. (See school supply lists below)


Please put the supplies in a backpack and label the backpack as either Secondary or Elementary by stapling the appropriate list to the backpack.  The backpacks should be placed in the container near the vestibule each Saturday through Saturday, August 21, 2021.  For your convenience, members of the team will also be at the church to receive backpacks between 6:00 P.M. and 7:30 P.M. on the evening of Thursday, August 16, 2018. 


Pastor Colleton extended to the congregation the option of Shiloh’s disciples making a donation of $25.00 in order to donate a backpack and supplies to the August Outreach Ministry for the School Supplies Distribution.  Donations should be made no later than Sunday, August 15, 2021 so that the August Outreach Team will be able to secure the funds to purchase and package the supplies.  


All checks or donations should be earmarked to Shiloh Baptist Church and a notation should be made on the Offering Envelope that the funds are for Backpacks with School Supplies.


THIS IS A CHURCH WIDE OUTREACH MINISTRY.  If you purchase the school supplies early, you usually get the best buy for your money.  Look for sales ads in the Washington Post on Sundays.
