October School Supply Drive
Did you know just a ten-minute walk up Medlock road sits The International Community School (ICS), a public charter elementary school designed in 2002 to bring together refugee, immigrant and local children in an academically challenging and nurturing environment?
During October you will see several activities underway at NDPC to support a school supply drive for ICS. ICS had a successful supply drive in the spring, but supplies for art, math and soccer are still needed.
We are incorporating the ICS supply drive into the October curriculum for the children during church school. As the children learn about the Hebrew people wandering in another land looking for home, they will hear how many of the children from ICS have also traveled long distances. Children will be asked to donate items such as wipes, rulers, and soccer socks.
You can help too. Please donate a supply from the list below by October 31. A donation basket for “ICS Supplies” is located in the donation area near the main office.
