Boulevard Academy School Supply Drive
Our church-wide ministry to Boulevard Academy expanded last year by having a School Supply Drive to aid the students and staff. This was in response to learning that very few of the Boulevard families are able to provide basic school supplies. Following last year’s drive, it was decided to make this a permanent addition to our outreach ministry.
Boulevard Academy is made up of students from all three Edmond High Schools. Boulevard Buddies is a ministry of volunteers who “adopted” the school 11 years ago. The group has grown over the years from 6 to 68 current volunteers. Boulevard Buddies provides support to the students and staff with regularly planned activities and addresses specific needs as they arise.
Our goal is to provide school supplies for 50 students. New enrollments are accepted every six weeks at Boulevard Academy. Extra supplies will be reserved to meet the needs of new students throughout the school year. Collection will begin Sunday, August 5th and continue through Sunday, August 12th.
If you are interested in joining the Boulevard Buddies efforts on a regular basis, would like more information about this ministry, or have any questions contact Ellen Lyons at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 405-820-7729.
