Adopt A School Update

    September 15, 2021 | Children's Ministry | Missions & Outreach by First Church
    Now that the 2021/22 school year has begun, our Adopt-a-School partnership with Hawthorne Elementary gets underway with renewed commitment. Despite the fact that it is unlikely that volunteers will be able to work within the MMSD school buildings, at least for the start the of 2021/22 school year, there are plenty of ways for us to reach out and help.
    If you are interested in donating items to the school, please place your donations in the bin at the church. Items requested are:
    1. Outdoor playground equipment: The school is in need of frisbees, heavy duty jump ropes, tennis balls, kick balls, soccer balls, basketballs, etc. so that each classroom has its own outdoor equipment.
    2. School supplies and backpacks
    3. Virtual volunteers: If you are interested in future virtual volunteering, go to the MMSD website and complete the App-garden application. You will then be ready to read with students and work with them on math when the time comes.
    If you have further questions, please contact Kathy Carpenter.
