This listing contains information about our ongoing Mission efforts. For date-specific mission activities, please view the monthly calendar.
Back to School Bash
The Indiana County Back to School Bash will be held on Saturday, August 17. If you would like to follow the news and updates on this community project, you can follow along on the B2SB Facebook Page. While you are there, why not give the Facebook page a “Like” to show your support.
Calvary members support this event by collecting items that will be provided to the participants and volunteering on the day of the event.
We are accepting Volunteer Applications on the Mission Table. You may also want to start hunting for bargains because during the month of July when we will emphasize a different Back to School Bash need each Sunday as follows:
Today and August 11 are “Anything Goes” Sundays for B2SB donations. We will accept donations of school supplies, packaged snacks, socks, new and gently used games. Any cash donations received will be used toward school supplies. Checks should be written payable to Calvary with B2SB on the remittance line. Volunteer forms are still welcome and may be deposited on the Mission Table.
ICCAP Food Collection

In August we are collecting food items for healthy breakfasts and packed school lunches: hot drink mixes, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, drink boxes and pouches, cereals (hot and cold), and fruit and pudding cups, packaged snack crackers, cookies, and granola bars. Use your imagination!
Little Dresses for Africa
In support of Mission Rwanda, Little Dress kits have been assembled and are ready for pick-up. Be sure to look through the trims and embellishments available for the dresses and help yourself. The trims may be applied as you wish, utilizing your artistic talents. In addition, we have twenty-five pre-cut kits for little shorts in sizes 4, 6, and 8, complete with elastic for the waistband.
We have extended the deadline and now will be collecting dresses the entire month of August and into September.
