After a COVID break, we are going to re-introduce our school kits project this summer. We will have collection boxes for the items needed to fill the school bags in the narthex and in the hallway by the church office in June, July and August. We will pack the bags in early September. Watch for “Back to School” sales beginning in July. Let’s complete as many bags as we can. In previous years we have completed as many as 75 bags! Now that people are thinking “back to school,” the need is great for school supplies in the U.S. and all over the world.
Thank you for your support for this fun and exciting project. If you have questions, please contact LaVerne Gresch or Joyce Christie.
We need the following items to fill each bag:
-Four 70-sheet notebooks of wide or college-ruled paper approx. 8” X 10 ½” ( No loose-leaf paper)
-One 30-centimeter ruler with centimeters on one side and inches on the other
-One pencil sharpener
-One blunt scissors (Please purchase safety scissors with embedded steel blades.)
-Five unsharpened #2 pencils with erasers/secure together with a rubber band
-Five black or blue ballpoint pens (no gel ink)/secure together with a rubber band
-One box of 16 or 24 crayons
-One eraser approximately 2 ½” long
All items should be new and in good condition. No patriotic symbols.
