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.
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. Other community groups and resources will be helping to make sure that families feel supported.
If you are vaccinated, masks aren't required. If you aren't vaccinated, please follow CDC and Eau Claire County guidelines. WE WILL HAVE A FREE COVID-19 VACCINE CLINIC AT THE EVENT. The Vaccine Clinic will be operated by the ECASD. Please maintain social distancing as best as possible. Hand sanitizer will be available.
How will you help us reach them?
This is the 2nd event that is being promoted for the entire school district. We don't know how many children will come, but we have to start somewhere. If there are more, we will find them help!
There are so many ways that you can help! It is going to be so great to see people from all churches and backgrounds coming together to help the families in Eau Claire!
