The Andrew Jackson School Supplies Drive is closing this week. Thank you to all who contributed to this project -- those of you who donated cash or supplies, those who helped publicize it, or who moved supplies to the school, thank you. With the participation of our congregation and Friends in the City, we collected more than $2,000 in cash and several hundred dollars in supplies. We will use all of it for supplies that will directly benefit the school and the children.
Transfer of supplies to the school began August 26,, and it was so very satisfying to see the hundreds of pencils, folders, and composition books gathered in Room 101. Especially, thanks to Heather and Logan Speirs who carried many bagfuls up the stairs and into the school.
But there are many more to transfer, and we sincerely hope that it will not depend on our older members to again supply the muscle power.
Please call Sharon Tomalin, Ginny Beier, or the church office at 215-563-3980, ext. 301, if you can help for any amount of time during school hours.
