Community Outreach, Autumn 2019
The Outreach Committee does not meet during July & August, but each summer the Committee receives a request from the Family Residence Shelter on Kingston Road to assist the families currently living there by donating school supplies for their children, as they will begin attending local schools in September.   
Members of the Committee plan to shop in August for a variety of supplies for children of all ages starting or returning to school.  The needed supplies include backpacks, lunch bags, water bottles, binders, calculators, geometry sets, pencil cases & pencil sharpeners, erasers, crayons & glue sticks.  During August, Outreach Committee members will be in the church lobby to answer any questions or receive any donations of these supplies, from the congregation.   We will also accept financial donations which will be used to help purchase backpacks & supplies.
Let’s help these children get off to a good start in the new school year!
