School Supply Program – Published July 16, 2017

This is the twentieth year First United Methodist Church has sponsored the Rogers County School Supply Program. The program provides free school supplies for any public school child in Rogers County who cannot afford to purchase them. Children who need school supplies can register Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., from August 1st to August 25 in our Central Campus Children’s Center (at the back of the building, 1615 N. Highway 88).

Last year we provided school supplies to more than 3,100 children at a cost of just over $50,000. Without the extreme generosity of our congregation, this drive could not happen year after year. Your donations help children start the school year off with the confidence they need to succeed. We need your help again this year. You may give online by clicking here and designating “School Supplies” for your donation.

Volunteers are needed beginning July 31 and may sign up in Disciple Hall at Central Campus or call 918-341-4580. Sunday school classes and other small groups will be asked to provide lunch for volunteers during the registration period.

  1. Do you still have any supplies left? I just heard about this. I’m new to Chelsea, Oklahoma from Montana.

    1. Hi Tracey: The school supply ended on August 17th and the supplies that were unclaimed have been committed to a mission trip. We will be having our school supply drive next summer as well.
