Back. To. School.

Summer break is coming to an end for many of our students at Rock Island! They will begin classes a week from today. Our desire is to send each of them back to school with backpacks & school supplies so that when they hit the classroom the first day they will be prepared & ready to learn!

Here’s a list of several items we need to get them started:

3-Ring Binders
Notebook paper
Blue/Red/Black pens
Thin markers
Washable Regular markers
Spiral notebooks
Pocket folders w/brads
Colored pencils
Glue sticks
Elmer’s glue
Pencil box
Index cards


We have plenty of backpacks for our students that are allowed to take the basic, commonly used backpacks that are not transparent, but many of our students are required to have clear/transparent backpacks.

You are welcome to drop off items anytime at Cross & Crown on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday between 8:00-4:00, Thursday 12:30-3:00, or you are welcome to contact us to arrange a pickup of larger supply donations. If you are unable to get out & purchase supplies, but would still like to help you can give financially towards this effort by way of cash, check or PayPal ( Thank you!
