School Supplies for Gibsontown Ministries
School is out, and yes, it is time to think about School Supplies for next year!
Please see the list of supplies that are needed for the students signed up through Gibsontown Ministries in the announcement above. FBC has participated in this ministry for many years! School Supplies should be delivered to FBC by July 26th. If you can't shop, you can still participate by donating to FBC. Indicate that it is for "School Supplies," and we will do the shopping for you. If you are in charge of a participating church and have members that would like to donate, you can bring their donations to Marjorie Sink on July 22nd when you bring your gathered supplies.
Also, please take note of the dates listed below and see if you are available to help on one of these days.
Adults, youth, and older children are needed to help pack bags. (Children must be accompanied by a parent.)
We hope you will join us! (The more people we have, the less time it will take!)
Thursday, July 29th – 9:00 – 11:00 am | Pack bags with school supplies at FBC: If you have church members that would like to help, please have them come to the First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall at 9:00 am. After we finish packing the bags, we will take them to the Gibsontown Ministries Building - usually about 11:30 am.
Friday, July 30th - 1:00 - 3:00 pm | Pass out bags at Gibsontown: We will be meeting at the Gibsontown Ministries building, 1022 Dorothy Street, to pass out the bags to the students. People are needed to help with this too!
Thank you for being a part of this vital ministry.
