This year our “Back to School” Drive will go to support students here in Catawba Country at the Rosenwald Education Center AND students affected by the floods in the ravaged areas of West Virginia.
Many of the students lost everything in the recent floods in West Virginia. Our goal is to collect 50 backpacks and fill them basic school supplies (pencils, paper, notebooks etc). Our own Tammy Hallman will ensure that these are delivered. (UPDATE: 50 Backpacks are already on the way to West Virginia! Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible.)
The items needed at Rosenwald include school supplies but also clothing and other times. Unlike many of our own children, most students at Rosenwald don’t get to do any “back to school” shopping.
You can help make a difference. Pick up a few items on the list the next time you’re at the store. Simply drop your items off in the Narthex outside the sanctuary or at the church office. The need is great and together with our sister churches, we can make a huge difference!
