Mission

We Care Eau Claire exists as a diverse community of believers and friends with the common goal of supporting and encouraging the global family – students, families, and employees – of the Eau Claire Area School district.

Vision

Our vision is to share the love of Jesus by equipping families with all they need to help their kids be successful as they return to school in the fall.  In addition, we seek to establish relationships that support and encourage educators and staff throughout the school year.

ABOUT THE EVENT

This event is designed for families in need of school supplies within the Eau Claire Area School District.  Families are asked to come to the Phoenix Park farmer's market pavilion and wait in line for a backpack filled with the required ECASD school supplies for each child's grade level.

Feed My People will be present and suppling families with groceries at the event.  Goodwill has provided a $10 coupon for clothing and supplies from their stores.  The Eau Claire Public Library is providing books for each child.  Other community groups and resources will be helping to make sure that families feel supported.

COVID-19 Protocols

DONATE BACKPACKS

We are looking for brand new backpacks this year.  It has been challenging to find enough donated supplies to fill the backpacks.  We are trying something new this year and asking the community to donate brand new, good quality backpacks.  We will then use the financial donations to fill the backpacks with the appropriate school supplies.

All backpacks can be brought to participating churches.  During the week of August 8-12th, all backpacks will be brought to...

Bethesda Lutheran Church: (Elementary)

Address: 123 W. Hamilton Ave.

Renew Church: (Middle & High School)

Address: 416 Niagara St.
