Lutheran World Relief accepts donations of “school kit” backpacks which they distribute around the globe to school-aged children (https://lwr.org/instructions). The St. John’s children’s Sunday school program will be participating and assembling LWR backpacks on Sunday, October 13, 2019.
We will be collecting items for backpacks in a designated bin in the narthex. New items only are needed. You can buy items as a “kit,” buy a lot of just a few items or make a monetary donation that will allow us to purchase anything necessary to complete our kits. A list of items needed are in the newsletter and in your bulletin. Thank you!
