School Supply Collection for LWR Kits

In preparation of our ELCA National Day of Service event, we will begin collecting specific school supplies on Sunday, August 1st.
Donations can be placed in a bin located outside the church office or in the rear of the sanctuary through Sunday, September 5th. For your convenience, order online through Amazon by clicking here.  Or, search for “Trinity LWR School Kits” under “Birthday Wish List” and have it shipped directly to Trinity. Items can be purchased in bulk and will be broken down the day of our assembly event.
Each Lutheran World Relief School Kits must include specific items as listed below:

FOUR 70-sheet notebooks of wide or college-ruled paper, approx. 8″ x 10 1/2″ (no loose leaf paper)
ONE 30-centimeter ruler, or a ruler with centimeters on one side and inches on the other
ONE pencil sharpener
ONE par of blunt scissors (safety scissors with embedded steel blades work well)
FIVE unsharpened #2 pencils with erasers; secure together with a rubber band
FIVE black or blue ball point pens (no gel ink); secure together with a rubber band
ONE box of 16 or 24 crayons
ONE 2 1/2″ eraser
(*covered with Thrivent Action Team Grant) *1 sturdy drawstring backpack-style cloth bag, approx. 14″ x 17″ with shoulder straps

Our goal is to pack 100 kits, so your donations will be greatly appreciated. Contact Elayne Olson to help prepare, set-up and/or tear-down for our ELCA National Day of Service event on Sunday, September 12th. Or, volunteer to transport the completed School Kits on Saturday, October 9th to an Ephrata drop-off point.
