Missions Committee School Supply Drive

The Elkhorn Hills UMC Missions Committee is beginning its annual School Supply Drive.

During the month of July, we will be collecting school supplies that will be used by both COPE and our Knit & Sew Group.  COPE will provide filled back packs for children in our area, and the Knit & Sew Group assembles school kits for UMCOR.  Check out the list below to find items you can contribute.

There is a collection area in the narthex for your donations.  If you’d prefer, you can also donate cash and we will do the shopping for you.  Remember to watch the paper for sales of school supplies.

Supplies Needed:

  • 150 pairs of blunt scissors
  • 200 12″ rulers
  • 150 boxes of 24 count crayons
  • 400 spiral notebooks
  • 840 #2 unsharpened pencils
  • 50 glue sticks
  • 150 hand held pencil sharpeners
  • 100 2-inch pencil erasers
  • 5 scientific calculators

Thank you for your support of these very worthwhile missions.

Paul Dritley, COPE representative and Jan Heliker, Knit & Sew Group

  1. Thank you, Brenda, for this information. Will Elkhorn Hills be accepting any back packs for this drive, in addition to the listed items? Margaret Elley
