In some countries, children don't have books or school supplies. Many have no schoolrooms; classes are held in half-destroyed buildings, tents, or even the open air. School kits may be these children's only educational resources.
Join others to make school bags for UMCOR distribution to children in need of school supplies throughout the world. Sewing machines are available for use; however, you don’t need to be a sewer to join in this weekly workshop. Some cut fabric, pin on handles, press, and help in other ways.
Meets: Mondays 8:30am - 12:00pm, January – May, in the Annex
Contact: Pastor Jonathan Heifner at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can donate to the Ingathering special offering in May, donate supplies from the supply list in August, or join others in sorting and assembling kits at a hands-on service event in September.
Get more information and a list of school supplies needed for the kits.
