Julian Thomas Elementary School

Our mission at Grace Church is to Know Christ and to Make Him Known. As we seek to fulfill the latter part of that statement, we want to be sure that we are doing so in our own backyard. That’s why this season, we are partnering up with Julian Thomas Elementary school in Racine to hold a supply drive to meet some very real needs amongst the students there. Julian Thomas has called on us to serve them through the donation of some much-needed items as they serve the families of students who are in need of them.

  • Individually wrapped/packaged snacks
  • Microwaveable food (we send some of our students home with food for the weekend)
  • Pull-on sweatpants or leggings
  • Crewneck or hoodie sweatshirts
  • Socks
  • Underwear
  • Long & short-sleeved t-shirts
  • Winter hats
  • Insulated winter gloves or mittens
  • School supplies (pencils, crayons, paper, glue sticks, etc…)
  • ChapStick
  • Body Lotion
  • Kleenex
  • Laundry detergent

Suggested sizes: Child through smaller adult (for kindergarten – 5th graders)

Clothing items in navy, blue, grey, black colors.
