St. John’s WELCA is once again collecting school supplies to send to Lutheran World Relief.  A display is set up in the Narthex. The school bags that we supply each contain a list of items needed. You can take a bag or several and fill them to donate. Any items are appreciated as well as Walmart gift cards. Please return the school bags or items by September 3rd. Below is the list of supplies needed for each bag sent. 

   4 70-sheet spiral notebooks

   1 12 inch ruler with metric

   1 pencil sharpener

   1 pair blunt scissors

   5 ball point pens (no gel)

   1 box crayons (16-24)

   1 eraser (2 1/2 inch)

We usually ask for pencils but we have enough for this year. 

Thanks for supporting this worthy project!
