Fill 200 Lutheran World Relief School Bags

SCHOOL KITS. CAN YOU HELP? Even though it seems like Summer has
barely begun the school supply lists are in stores and the weekly adds are
offering sale prices on school supplies. Please take advantage of these sale
offerings and help complete our goal of 200 school kits. In order to complete
200 school kits we will need: blunt scissors, pencil sharpeners, boxes of
crayons, erasers, notebooks, pencils, and pens. With smart shopping $5
will complete a bag and give a child the chance of going to school and the
chance to change the world. ***Shopko has 50¢ Crayola crayons (limit 4) and
19¢ notebooks (limit 18). This is a very good deal but we need many trips to
meet our needs. So if you are out shopping please consider picking up some.
(Place supplies in drop off box in narthex)
With some donations already in and a few excess supplies from last year,
here is what we have and what we still need to complete 200 school kits for
assembly in October.
