Help Provide School Supplies and Backpacks for Children in Need

 It is that time of year! Ascension is collecting school supplies to provide backpacks for students (kindergarten through 5th grade) at Summit Hall Elementary School, Gaithersburg as part of the Linkages to Learning Program. The purpose of this program is to improve the well-being of children and their families through collaborative delivery of school services that address social, economic, health, and emotional issues that interfere with the academic success of a child. Lists of supplies for each grade level are available in the narthex and on the website. Please take a list or share a list with a friend. A monetary donation of $14 is welcome to help cover the cost of the backpacks. Please place monetary donations in the collection plate. Please include “for backpacks” on the memo line of the check. On Sunday August 20, we will gather in Room 1 after the 9 am service to stuff the backpacks. All help will be appreciated. We can work together while we visit and get to know each other. Thank you for your support.
