Outreach Projects
School Kits
The Outreach team will be collecting items during the month of August for school kits that will be assembled by the Shenandoah for distribution through Church World Service. All items will be taken to the district office’s Barn, as there are very specific guidelines in the way these kits are assembled. The following items can be donated (only these items; be very precise!):
- One pair of blunt metal scissors (rounded tip)

- Three 70-count spiral notebooks or spiral notebook containing 200-210 pages (NO loose leaf or filler paper!

- One 30-centimeter ruler (12”)

- One hand-held pencil sharpener - One larger eraser

- Six new pencils with erasers

- One box of 24 crayons (only 24)

In addition, 12” x 14” or 14” x 17” finished size cotton or lightweight canvas bags with cloth handles need to be constructed or bought, and money will also be collected for mailing the school kits. Please see one of the Outreach team members if you have questions or would like more details. 

Open Doors
The Outreach team would also like for everyone to begin saving shampoo and lotion sample bottles (found in motels, etc.) during the summer for the church's collection drive for Open Doors (formerly HARTS) in the fall.
