Love of Children School Supply Drive
Soon kids and teachers will begin preparing for the start of school.  Stores will be offering special deals on pencil, paper, and crayons.  And the churches of the Nebraska Conference will be working together in a joint ministry effort to collect school supplies for their local schools.  One of the Three Great Loves we are honoring this year is Love of Children, and we have chosen to highlight that through this joint project.

For the students and families at Parrish School, our “Backpack to School” outreach has an important role in the education of these young people.  The principal at Parrish also said they have need of single-subject spiral notebooks, so if you don’t want to search for the entire list, just notebooks will be most welcome. There are backpacks and supply lists available in the Parlor starting July 22nd, and supplies need to be returned by August 5th.  Contact Barb Switzer if you have any questions.

Here is the full list of needed supplies:

3-ring binder
Looseleaf paper, for the binder
Set of dividers, for the binder
3 report folders with pockets
3 spiral notebooks (single subject)
4-6 pens
4-6 pencils
Pencil sharpener
Ruler, not metal
1-2 highlighter pen
1-2 glue sticks
Small calculator
