Lutheran World Relief School Kit Collection - The Ruth Gathering of the Women of Bethel will be collecting school supplies for Lutheran World Relief School Kits in July and August.  School Kits contain essential supplies to help children continue learning in the face of serious obstacles.  That learning leads to a better life for them, their families and their communities.  School bags will be provided for filling with the following items:

  • Notebooks of wide or college ruled paper approximately 8" x 10-1/2" containing 280-300 sheets (if using 70-sheet notebooks, please include four); no loose leaf paper
  • One blunt scissors (safety scissors with embedded steel blades work well)
  • One 30-centimeter ruler, or a ruler with centimeters on one side and inches on the other
  • One pencil sharpener
  • Five new unsharpened #2 pencils with erasers, secure together with a rubber band
  • Five ballpoint pens (No Gel Ink) secure together with a rubber band
  • One eraser approximately 2-1/2" long
  • One box of 16 or 24 crayons

The school bags with an attached list of items needed will be available beginning the weekend of July 20 and 21 in the lobby Downtown and at Highlands.  Please take a bag, fill it with the needed supplies and return it to the bin labeled "LWR School Kits" by August 31.  If you can't fill a bag, you are welcome to donate any of the above listed items by placing them in the "LWR School Kits" bin.  We hope you will consider helping us fulfill this important mission project.

Pine Ridge Indian Reservation School Supply DrivePlease drop off new/unused school supplies, or monetary donations. Bins are set up at both the Highlands and Downtown Campuses.
