Once again, our church is supporting the School Supply Drive run by CUMAC (Center of United Methodist Aid to the Community), our Methodist outreach agency in Paterson.
I’ve attached the list of items they are requesting —- please do what you can. They do ask for things for older students – they seem to get short-changed as people generally bring things for younger kids.
A specific need this year is backpacks that will be filled with the supplies that are collected. If you can get to a 5-Below store, they have decent backpacks for $5.
The cutoff date for bringing items to church is August 12.
There will be a bag available in the vestibule for you to put your items starting next Sunday.
