21 School Supply Drive
We are currently collecting school supplies for Crossover Ministries and Evergreen Elementary School.Crossover Ministries gives school physicals and backpacks loaded with school supplies to needy families in the city. They need their supplies by the last week in July so we will need those returned no later than July 21. Sticky notes are posted on the bulletin board in the nursery hallway. Each note represents about a $10 cost.

Once these are completed, we will begin collecting for Evergreen. Those sticky notes will be put up later in July and they will need to be returned by August 18. All supplies can be placed in the bins under the bulletin board. Any questions please contact Sandy Wingen at sandy.wingen1961@gmail.com or Barb Astoria at astoriab@gmail.com.
