Is there anything more exciting than new school supplies? We will be collecting items for students during the month of August – grab a few extra things as you shop for your own youngsters or make a special trip for those without. Some of the items will be packed into school kits for Lutheran World Relief and will be sent off with the quilts in October. (See lists available in narthex for what goes into a kit or google “LWR school kits”.) The school year runs differently in other countries – for instance, Guatemalan schools begin in later January – so don’t worry that we’re too late. Remaining items will be distributed at our neighborhood elementary schools, Roosevelt and Highland Acres. Thank you for your generosity to help kids learn and grow LCC’s Altar Focus
