The kids in the Village of Oak Creek need a great education, whether we have a local school or not. Communities stand together and the people of those communities assist one another when times are tough.

Many of our local VOC students are living below the poverty line. And with the economic shutdown, some families are struggling to provide even the necessities.

This leaves many of the students in our Village unable to start the new school year with proper school supplies, which means they are not prepared to succeed in school.

Village of Oak Creek Church of the Nazarene (VocNaz), is sponsoring a backpack and school supply collection for the students of our community.

If you would like to assist those in need by donating backpacks and school supplies, there will be collection bins placed at Clark’s Market, Desert Flour Bakery and Classic Curls (Bell Rock Plaza) July 10 through August.

A backpack and full set of school supplies average $75 per student. We need to provide for 75 students this year, which is over $5,600. Since we buy in bulk, we’re able to stretch the buying dollars which will make your donation go much further and help more kids. Cash or checks can be dropped at any of the above locations.

Checks can be mailed to VOC Church of the Nazarene, 55 Rojo Drive, Sedona, AZ 86351. The memo line should read “Back 2 School” and the check made out to “VOC Nazarene.”

You can also contact Pastor Jim at 702-810-4048 to arrange pickup of your gift.
