School Supplies

Women of the Church are collecting Project Promise School Kits for Lutheran World Relief. Imagine having to choose between a meal or purchasing school supplies. The school kits are sent to places where even the few required school supplies may be more than a family can afford. Pencils and paper can help write a positive future. Even when children can attend school, they often go without the basic supplies. This year Divinity has been collecting school supplies and the Happy Sew & Sews (quilt group) have spent countless hours making 100 plus backpacks to be filled. On a Sunday in September, the congregation will get together after a light lunch to pack the bags. We are still in need of 16 or 24 count boxed crayons (any brand) and small safety scissors. A large box marked “SCHOOL KITS” is in the Narthex awaiting your loving donations. Over 191,000 children around the world say thank you for giving!
