The Outreach School Supplies Project – Will You Help?

backpack_pileSCHOOL SUPPLIES ARE SO EXPENSIVE! The items on the supply list for a 5th grader at Brownsville Elementary cost over $80 … and that doesn’t include a backpack! Won’t you help a local student get a good start this school year? Instead of filling individual backpacks as you have in the past, our Community Outreach Ministry is asking for monetary donations and planning to buy the items in quantity and set up a “market” where students can come and chose their supplies themselves. We are hoping to assist over 50 school-aged children whose families come to our food pantry. We can’t do it without your generosity. Envelopes are available in the back of the sanctuary for your contributions.

If you are out of town and would like to help, please click here for mailing instructions or for the necessary information to give electronically from your bank’s BillPay system. Please just put in the memo: Outreach School Supplies. Thank you!
