SOS is COMING!!!
With Watertown schools ending fully face-to-face and unmasked, we are gearing up for a school supply demand in August. To help, the Shared Community Missions Group is planning our annual SOS (support our schools) by collecting school supplies and offering a FREE distribution. See below for the list of school supplies. A box is available in the narthex. Other boxes are around town, including Bradow Jewelers, PJ’s Pizza and other local businesses. Our hope is to collect enough supplies so that any family in need has supplies for school. Leftover supplies are given to various schools as resources for students throughout the school year. Even in a pandemic, we were able to distribute backpacks full of supplies, safely and gratefully.
School supply sales come and go, so keep the list handy to grab some while you shop.
