Backpack & Book Drive

A Unity Outreach Project

July – August 2021

We’re continuing to collect new children’s books to be distributed to the students at Noble Elementary, our neighbor in Golden Valley.  You will find the suggested book listing at the bottom of the page. Students will receive the books in September. Book Drive collection is July 1 – August 30.

Do you shop with Amazon?  We invite you to use Amazon Smile and select Unity Christ Church as your charity, Unity Minneapolis will receive a donation as well.

Monetary donations are also appreciated and it’s easy to give on our website.  Please choose the Backpack / Book Drive Fund.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!
