CHANGE FOR CHANGE

JUNE 2017

SALVATION ARMY BACKPACK PROGRAM   

 

Summer has barely started and here I am, already wanting to talk to you about school supplies for next school year! It may seem crazy, but its true - not the crazy part, the wanting to talk about school supplies part! 

An annual summer project of Luther Memorial is to participate in the School Supply and Book Bag Program, in conjunction with the New River Valley Salvation Army. This summer will be our 10th straight year of participating in this fantastic community ministry!

To get a jump start on the project, the June Change for Change donations have been designated to go the School Supply and Book Bag Program.

All of the donations given in June will be used to purchase school supplies and book bags. These are assembled together and then donated to our local Salvation Army so that they may be provided to families with children who have difficulty affording necessary school supplies.

EVERY CHILD in our community, without exception, deserves to be ready for that first day of school – this program is a great way for us to help make that happen!

We will be preparing book bags for: pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, elementary school (grades 1-4), middle school (grades 5-8), and high school (grades 9-12).

And coming soon – a display in the church narthex about the School Supply and Book Bag Program, and more ways you can offer your support!

Let’s make our 10th year of participating in this community ministry our best year yet!

Please contact Leah Wechtaluk McFarren (lwechtal@vt.edu) or Kathy Parrott (homes@vt.edu) with any questions.
