School Dressing Days - Late Summer

Due to COVID-19 concerns, this program is being administered a bit differently.

Interfaith Community Council (ICC) , of which Fredericksburg UMC is a member along with more than 20 other area faith communities, sponsors School Dressing Days each summer. This event exists to help students from Kindergarten through 12th grade get prepared to start the school year. Each student receives a backpack, basic school supplies, toiletries, new socks and underwear, jeans and a shirt. Gently used outerwear, and shoes may also be available. Our members support School Dressing Days through their financial gifts, donations of clothing, toiletries, backpacks, etc. and by volunteering their time throughout the year preparing for the event and by serving at the event itself.  Contact Jean Himmel.
