A Congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.

School Supplies Drive

St. Jacob’s is sponsoring children of our migrant farm worker community entering 6th grade at Lake and Marlington Local Schools. There are nine children in total being sponsored by St. Jacob’s but over seventy kids are in need of school supplies. All requested items are readily available at Walmart, Target, Office Max/Staples or even dollar stores and on-line. Brand names do not matter but remember to treat these children as you would treat your own.

· Unless otherwise specified, please stick with neutral colors that would be appropriate for either boy or girl.

· Please take a card associated with supplies you will donate. The supply lists are very specific, so stick to the item on each card.

· All supplies need to be at St. Jacob’s by July 21st. Look for a tote marked “school supplies” in the hospitality area.

Want to help? Folks beyond our congregation, individuals or businesses, can help, too! Just contact the Volunteer Coordinator at the Hartville Migrant Center.

Thank you for sharing our bountiful blessings with families in our community!
