While most kids and families are celebrating that school is out for the summer, we are gearing up for our annual backpack program. First Christian Church collects school supplies and fills 100 backpacks for children at Glen Haven Community Center and Cone Elementary. School supplies are also donated to a teacher’s supply closet at Cone Elementary.
In the coming weeks, please consider picking up school supplies for this outreach project. The following items are needed and can be placed in the donation box in the foyer at church: colored pencils, pencils, crayons, composition notebooks, notebook paper, single-subject spiral notebooks, glue sticks, rulers, pencil bags, scissors, pocket folders, and travel-size hand sanitizer. Questions can be directed to Anna Myers. Enjoy summertime and thanks for helping us prepare backpacks in time for the return to school!
