We would love to restock our school teachers in the congregation! As most everyone knows teachers always have to buy supplies out of their own pockets, which can get expensive. Let's show them some love and be a blessing to them, and anything extra we might give them could be distributed to their co-workers!
Anything will be appreciated, but some of the specific items requested were:
-Dry Erase markers (this was the #1 request it seems!)
-#2 pencils
-Loose leaf notebook paper
-spiral notebooks
-Crayons, markers, colored pencils
-Hand Sanitizer
We'll be accepting donations for 3 weeks at the church, so please grab a few items as you can when you're at the store so we can show our teachers some love! Thanks everyone!
