Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors.

It’s hard to believe our kids will be heading back to school in just a few weeks. That means it’s time to start shopping for school supplies!  While you’re out doing your shopping, please consider picking up a few extra supplies to support our August Mission.

We’re collecting NEW backpacks and school supplies for Summerfield UMC’s after school program and for the foster children of Covenant to Care.  Suggested items include notebooks, pencils, crayons, markers, etc. — any items that are useful for school start-up and during the school year.

Backpacks for older youth are needed, too.  This includes kids going off to college or tech school, 8th grade to high school, or even for those going into the work force after high school who have little support.

Items can be left on the shelf over the coat rack outside the choir room.  Please label your donation as August Missions.  The deadline to donate has been extended until Tuesday, September 7.

Thanks, in advance, for your consideration.
