Providing school supplies, backpacks, and tennis shoes for families in need.

Each year Greencastle Christian Church partners with Phil the Need, a local nonprofit organization.

Last year we helped about 600 kids in Putnam County, Indiana, and we are gearing up for about the same (or more) this year!

Tools for School is a program that helps any family that needs assistance to furnish each child with a backpack filled with the school supplies requested by the child's school and grade, as well as a new pair of tennis shoes.

Ways to Help

1. Purchase Items

One way to help is by picking up a backpack  with a list of school items to purchase.
These can be picked up before or after church services on July 10th and July 17th in the GCC hallway 

2. Donate Money

A second way is to donate money to help us fill the backpacks. Any and all donations are helpful as we have many items we are purchasing directly that are NOT on the tags. Simply select "Tools for School" under the options for Fund. You may also donate in person at GCC with Tools for School notated or by mailing a  check to GCC to PO Box 521 Greencastle, IN. 46135.  If mailing a check please notate Tools for School in the memo portion or with a note including where the funds are to be applied. 

3. Volunteer

A third way to help is by volunteering. Please fill out this  form and we will contact you with more information.
