The first day of school will be here before we know it, and it’s time to start thinking about school supplies! We invite you to support Sycamore Community School students by purchasing new supplies or donating unused school supplies to Operation Give Back.  Our goal is to provide over 350 students with a backpack, along with items from their specific school supply lists.  

Our School Supply Wish List includes (but is not limited to) the following NEW or UNUSED items:

 1″ or 1.5″ binders
 Ear Buds
 Flash Drives
 Ziploc Bags
 Hand Sanitizer
 Paper Towels

Please look through your child’s backpack before you put it away for the summer!  If there are any unused items from the list above that made their way home at the end of the school year, we would love to add them to our inventory.  Maybe you like to start your Back to School shopping early? Please consider buying extras when you find those great deals, and drop them off at an OGB School Supply Collection Site!!   Sites include:

 Sycamore District Office, 5959 Hagewa Drive
 E.H. Greene Intermediate School, 5200 Aldine Drive
 Blue Ash Elementary, 9541 Plainfield Road

Operation Give Back is hosting a School Supply Giveaway on Saturday, August 11, for students who attend Sycamore Schools and Stewart Elementary.  With support from countless friends of OGB – area churches, including Montgomery Community Church, local businesses, families and staff from neighboring school districts (including Sycamore, Indian Hill, and Loveland), and many more –  we are able to provide hundreds of students with backpacks and school supplies as they prepare for the all-important first day of school!

To make this happen, we need YOU!  Please consider volunteering your time to serve and interact with these wonderful children and their families.  With adequate staffing, we can ensure that our guests are warmly welcomed, complete their shopping in a timely manner, and take with them the sense of fellowship that is the core of Operation Give Back.

Below are the different serving opportunities. Please be aware of the DATES and TIMES.  All events will take place at our OGB home (10891 Millington Court, 45242). We are asking that Table Stockers and Clean Up Crew be 10 years or older, and that Personal Shoppers be 18 years or older.  Adults, we ask that you consider serving as a Personal Shopper…these are often difficult spots to fill, yet it is such an important and rewarding role.  

Thank you for being a part of our School Supply Giveaway!

Operation Giveback; Christmas Elves

This time of year can be difficult for families without funds. Those same families still have children with expectant hearts and hungry tummies on Christmas. Operation Giveback in Blue Ash, helps these folks make their children’s holidays a little brighter with toys, food and clothing. We are thankful that members our our congregation were able to take time out of their busy holiday schedules to serve other families through Operation Giveback’s Holiday Store endeavor.

School supply project a success!

You may recall a couple weeks ago, the New Church of Montgomery joined in the efforts of Operation Giveback to give students in the Sycamore school district a chance to enter school with the supplies they needed. Helpers donated goods and aided families in their search to fulfill school supply lists. Here are some pictures from the event! Visit their website to find out how you can assist in their many worthwhile community efforts!
