BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS
300 PENCIL CASE DONATIONS
It’s that time again!
Over the past several years, St. Andrew’s has participated in the communitywide project of the Blessing of the Backpacks, and we are once again blessed with the opportunity to serve the needs of the children of the Shippensburg community by donating 300 pencil cases to the cause.
Over the coming weeks, please bring pencil cases to the Parish Life Center where we will count and deliver them to Memorial Lutheran Church in time for the assembling of the backpacks. The Blessing and distribution will take place at Memorial Lutheran August 11th from 4-7PM.
If you are unable to go out to purchase pencil cases, please feel free to make a donation, and we will secure the cases for you. If you are writing a check, please be sure to note “Pencil Cases” in the memo line.
This community outreach is a concrete way to help our children go to school prepared with the supplies they need.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Lisa Turchi or Bill Gawors. Thank you for your generosity! ~
