Thursday, August 9th from 9-11 am and 5-7 pm at Sussex Outreach
The members of the Cooperating Churches of Sussex are sponsoring Operation Backpack. This is a way to ensure that every child in the Sussex area receives some of the necessary school supplies to get the school year off to a great start. You can help by donating needed school supplies. There will be a collection bin at church until August 7th. Suggested items include: New backpacks, wide-ruled notebooks, wide-ruled loose leaf paper, folders, pens (black, blue, red), markers (fine and broad tip), #2 pencils, rulers, protractors, highlighters, compasses, calculators (basic 4-function), watercolor paints, crayons (24 count), Erasers (pencil cap and regular), school glue, glue sticks, child-size scissors, post-it notes and permanent markers. We also accept gift cards and cash donations. This money will be used to purchase school supplies and backpacks for Operation Backpack.
Distribution of supplies will be Thursday, August 9th from 9-11 am and 5-7 pm at Sussex Outreach. If you or someone you know is in need of school supplies, please contact Tracy at SOS (262-347-3563) or email@example.com) to register. To be eligible for the supplies, students must attend a school in the Hamilton School District or attend one of the Cooperating Churches of Sussex (Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church, Lisbon Presbyterian Church, Redeemer United Church of Christ, St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, St. James Catholic Church, Sussex United Methodist Church). Working together, we can enhance children’s learning by providing them the tools they need.
