Special school supply collection, September 9, 16 and 23

Special Help for Our Schools This year the Mission Possible Team is exploring how we can offer more support to our neighborhood schools. In the coming months, we’ll be talking about ways all of us can help with gifts of our time and treasure. But for now, we’re focusing on a special kind of school supplies. Many of the children who attend face serious economic challenges. The school staff has shared a list of the needs they must deal with on a regular basis, and we’re asking for your donations. We’ll collect the school’s special request items September 9, 16, and 23. The items include: underwear (especially for older boys), feminine hygiene products, baby wipes, travel size toothpaste, toothbrushes, and gift cards for places where such items might be purchased. You can also donate cash, marking your envelope “school supplies,” and we will convert it into gift cards for you. Thank you for your help in making “back to school” more successful this year.
