Because of your Generosity...

This August the Outreach Board was able to purchase 78 backpacks at the Land’s End summer sale. Last Thursday night at the backpack patch party iron-on patches were applied to cover up the monograms and cards were inserted to let students know that First Congregational supports their scholastic endeavors. We will be blessing these backpacks next Sunday along with all the school supplies donated by the congregation. Those supplies include 467 pencils, 342 ballpoint pens, 204 glue sticks, 132 mechanical pencils, 131 spiral notebooks, 81 folders, 66 erasers, 54 highlighters, 43 boxes of crayons, 42 pocket facial tissue packets, 20 bottles of glue, 19 scissors, 12 boxes of colored pencils, 12 packs of notebook paper, 10 calculators, 8 rulers, 4 compass/protractor sets, 1 box of markers and miscellaneous notebooks, dividers, etc. Once again this congregation has responded to children needing school supplies. Thanks from the Outreach Board for making our job so easy.
