Annual School Supply Drive

Every summer, we collect financial commitments and in-kind donations to send our students in need off to school prepared for the new school year. 

In 2020, we were able to provide backpacks and supplies to approximately 2,100 students.

For the past eleven years, The Religious Coalition has partnered with the Frederick County Public School CASS (Community Agency School Services) Program, Evangelical Reformed United Church of Christ, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek, and others to collect and distribute school supplies to Frederick City students.

The Religious Coalition will not be holding the School Supply Drive for the 2021-2022 school year. If you are in need of supplies please reach out to your child’s school for information about how you can apply. Thank to you to everyone that has supported this drive over the year
