This year will be HUMC’s ninth year collecting supplies for our sister church, Olivet UMC, in their mission to reach out and encourage their neighbors.
HUMC will continue the collection until Sunday, August 18. There are boxes for notebooks, pencils, markers, etc. on the table on the west side of the Narthex. Copies of the Chicago Public School list of essential items are on the table, and the list can also be found below.
We will package the supplies for different grade levels from preschool through high school with an emphasis on grades 1 through 6. Last year we were able to provide 100 complete kits to add to Olivet’s own collection.
If you find it difficult to purchase items, you can help us fill gaps with cash donations. Make checks out to HUMC with “School Supplies” written in the memo blank or put cash in an envelope marked “School Supplies” in the offering plate.
If you have any questions, please ask Bobbie Irwin.
