First is collecting school supplies for Lutheran World Relief school kits, which we will assemble as part of the ELCA’s God’s Work, Our Hands Sunday and First Fest on Sept. 8.
Bring donations to the altar before/after worship or during offering. For more information contact Bridget Crave.
Gifts of money are also appreciated, which will be used to offset the cost the backpacks (not pictured above, but also a part of the kit; First will place a special order for the backpacks to make certain they meet LWR’s specific requirements). Make the donation out to First Lutheran and write “LWR School Kits” in the memo.
