Sharing Christ – Changing Lives – Providing Backpacks!


We are ready to launch the newly-adopted Backpack Drive at UCC Groton and will be providing 250-300 students with backpacks and school supplies on August 24, 2018. Here’s how you can help:

Volunteer to shop NOW for any shortfall of school supplies which may still be needed. If you enjoy finding bargains and bulk-shopping (either online or in person), we will need a few people to help with last-minute shopping of outstanding items. You can be reimbursed for the cost of purchased items.

Donate school supplies. The following items are needed to round out the many donations provided by others. Feel free to buy in bulk to get the best deals:

  • 120 3-ring binders with 2-inch rings
  • 450 pocket folders
  • 70 packs of index cards (100 each)
  • 130 packs College-ruled paper (150 sheets each)
  • 135 College-ruled composition books
  • 90 packs of dividers for 3-ring binders

Volunteer to set-up at Devens Community Center, August 19-23. We will need a number of people to unload a truck and/or stock tables with donated school supplies and backpacks at various times during the week. Morning, afternoon and evening volunteers are welcome.

Volunteer for Distribution Day, August 24. This involves one-on-one shopping with families for backpacks and supplies during two separate shifts (8:30 – 11:30 a.m. and 5-7 p.m.) at Devens Community Center. Volunteers must be adults.

Make a monetary donation which will be used to buy school supplies and backpacks.

Donations of supplies will be collected in Fellowship Hall near the Choir room. Please contact anyone on the Backpack Drive coordinating team to sign-up to volunteer, make a monetary donation, or learn more: Andrea McDonough, Stefanie Lempp, Bebe Goudey, Bob Goudey, Raquel Majeski and Doris Barreiro.

Altar Flowers for Summer
We would like to have flowers from your gardens on the altar. We have an assortment of vases available in the kitchen, if you’d like to make your arrangement here. Let Carol Zaiatz (; 978-448-2091) in the office know if you want to signup for a particular week and what dedication you would like. Thank you!
