School Backpacks for empty tomb Kids

It’s backpack time again - time to put smiles on the faces of the elementary-school kids of the community who need our help to start school with a backpack filled with all the necessary supplies.  These kids will sign up at empty tomb on July 18, and the backpacks will be distributed to them at empty tomb on August 3.  It is expected that we at FUMC will supply at least 50 of these filled backpacks.  So, now is the time to start shopping.  

A list of the needed supplies follows, and there will be a big orange tub at a table in Friendship Center South on July 9, 16, and 23 for your convenience in dropping off your supplies and backpacks.  During the week, the tub will be in the Church Resource Room.  Of course, if shopping is not your favorite thing to do, we will be happy to accept your monetary donation and do the shopping for you.  The filled backpacks will be blessed at both worship services on July 30.

This is a most worthy effort, and, as always, your most generous support is so very much appreciated by the kids, empty tomb, and your Local Outreach Ministry.  

Thank you ever so much for all you do.
