As in past years, Saint John’s will support Laurel School students with donations of school supplies and backpacks, but in 2020 our collection will look a little different. The Board for Human Needs will be accepting cash donations through the end of September and will purchase all the supplies. Our goal is to fill the thirty backpacks we have purchased with a Thrivent Action Team grant.
If you have not yet picked up a school supply list for the homeless children at Laurel Elementary, please consider it soon. Supplies are due to Saint John’s by Sunday, August 7. The Board will fill backpacks with supplies on Saturday the thirteenth and deliver everything to Laurel on the fifteenth of August. To all of you who have already filled a school supply bag, thanks for bestowing your blessings on others!
Please help us meet this goal through your cash donations. Checks should be made out to Saint John’s and dropped in the offering plate (be sure to note in the memo field the check is for “Laurel School”), or mailed to the church office. A cash donation box is available near the Welcome Center.
We would love to have assistance assembling backpacks on Saturday, August 13, at 9:00 am in Room 302 (the Sun Room).
Thank you for helping us meet this need in our community.
The Board of Human Needs finds opportunities for the members of Saint John’s to provide a Christian witness by helping people in the community struggling with daily necessities.
