Help us set students up for success as they go back to school. Show the practical love of God by donating school tools to students in need here at home and overseas.

Last year, our CGLC family generously provided 281 backpacks filled with school supplies to students in the White Bear Lake Area Schools (WBL). These were excitedly claimed within a week of being dropped off! Unfortunately, many more students were turned away. This year, our goal is 350 backpacks to ensure no student is denied the necessary tools for success.

How You Can Help

Donate funds: Donate online here or make a check out to CGLC, and we’ll do the shopping for you! Any amount is greatly appreciated, and with just $60, we can provide a completed backpack to a deserving student. 

Donate supplies: Lists of school supplies can be found here if you wish to donate items directly. New empty backpacks and filled backpacks are most appreciated.

Fill a school bag: You may pick up a bag crafted by one of our dedicated sewers and fill it with these items for Lutheran World Relief (LWR).

Help fill the backpacks: Sign up here to fill backpacks on July 30 or August 6.
