Â Â Ascension is collecting supplies and financial donations to provide backpacks for students (kindergarten through 5thÂ grade) at Summit Hall E. S. in Gaithersburg as part of the Linkages to Learning Program.Â The purpose of this program is to improve the well-being of children and their families through collaborative delivery of school based services that address social, economic, health and emotional issues that interfere with the academic success of the child. The lists of supplies are available in the narthex. You are not obligated to provide all of the supplies on the list. All donations are welcome. If you would like to make a financial donation, please make the check payable to the church and write â€śFor Backpacksâ€ť on the memo line.Â Please put the check in the plateÂ on Sunday. Â Please put the supplies in Room 2Â OnÂ Sunday, August 26, the backpacks will be assembled in RoomÂ 2Â following theÂ 10 amÂ service. All help will be appreciated. We can work together while we visit and get to know each other.Â Thank you in advance for your support of this project.
