LOOKING FOR AN OPPORTUNITY TO BLESS A CHILD?
This fall, the FBC Women’s Ministry – in partnership with White Cross – will be assembling and distributing School Kits to underprivileged children. But now is the time to buy! School Supply Sales have already started, so now it the time to start collecting these items. Please watch the ads at places like Staples, Office Max, Walgreens, and Target. You can get school supplies at a fraction of the regular cost, such as 10 cents for a spiral notebook or 25 cents for a pair of scissors!
WHAT IS A SCHOOL KIT?
School Kits are small packages of school supplies assembled by volunteers and shipped to children in need all around the world. Though last year’s collections were incredibly successful, the need in our world is still ongoing. If you are interested in participating, see below a list of the items we are collecting. A list will also be printed in the bulletin Sunday morning.
WHAT ITEMS ARE BEING COLLECTED?
Each individual School Kit will contain all of the following:
- Three 70-count spiral notebooks
- One pair of rounded-tip metal scissors
- One 30-centimeter/12-inch ruler
- One hand-held pencil sharpener
- One large eraser
- Six new, unsharpened pencils with erasers
- One box of 24 crayons (only 24)
- One 12″ x 14″ to 14″ x 17″ finished size cotton or lightweight canvas bag with cloth handles. Place handles on long side and add a two-inch Velcro closer.
WHERE CAN I BRING ITEMS TO DONATE?
Donations can be placed in the “School Kits” box outside the Fellowship Hall door. Keep an ear out for information on how you can be involved in assembling these kits in the fall!
