Due to the number of community outreach efforts for back-to-school supplies, we have decided to focus our Backpack Ministry on “replenishing” these in December. You can support our Sue Conaway Backpack Mission by purchasing the following items and placing them in the box in the foyer. Boxes will be packed and sent to schools at our December 8th evening service.
Pencils, crayons, colored pencils, paper, glue sticks, tissues, marble composition books.
Our church has a Kids’ Closet on the top floor of the church building. If you have never seen it, ask me and I will be glad to show you around. We have Kids’ Closet clothing giveaways the first Saturday of every other month. Our next giveaway will be on October 5th. We give away clothing at no cost to kids in need. If you become aware of a family that needs kids’ clothes, we can also help them find clothes between clothing giveaways. Just contact me and I will set up a time to meet them to help them find clothing. We have clothing in sizes for infants through boys’ and girls’ size 16. We do not have clothing for adults.
Donations of new or gently used kids’ clothing and shoes are always welcome. There is a barrel in the welcome center where you can put your donations. Thank you for your help and clothing donatons. Please contact me if you have any questions about our kids’ closet. – Tacy Bonner
