Children Helping Children.... Back to School Project
The children of Boiling Springs UMC would like to help students in the area that do not have the necessary supplies to begin their school year. The school that we will be helping this year is Forts Pond Elementary. The Principal told me that many of their students arrive and don't even have pencils. It would be a blessing to be able to give them these supplies to get their year off to a good start.
We have set a goal of collecting $2,000.00 that would be used to buy back packs. With that amount we would be able to purchase 250 book bags. That would be 50 bags per grade level to be distributed by the school to the neediest children.
We are asking that you help donate the supplies to fill each back pack.
OK so we know where we are:
we still need:
100 pack of 12 count #2 pencils
250 One Subject Spiral notebooks
150 packs of 24 count crayons
150 packs of 12 count color pencils
Thanks for you help in getting this project done before school starts.
With sales going on everywhere right now - keep in mind the last items on the list:
250 glue sticks
250 dry erase / low odor markers green, blue, black. Most packs have red as well and we can make that work.
200 packs of wide rule notebook paper
All donations must be in by 8/3/14 as we will be delivering the bags on 8/5/14.
