In the News
Hold on, there, while you’re shopping for yourself, add something for someone less fortunate…
Nov. 30 – Dec. 17. This year, Rachel’s Challenge, the SCA, and Guidance will participate in the Backpack Drive. Each year, this project has been a marvelous success and of great value to families in need. The idea is that we collect backpacks which will include warm-weather items--backpacks, gloves, hand warmers (Hot Hands), blankets, hats, socks, and stuffed animals. Before the holidays, these backpacks will be presented to the PIN ministries in Virginia Beach. We are striving to exceed last year’s efforts. Contributions should be delivered to: Mrs. Walton, Rm. 501, Mrs. Wynter Rm. 412, Mrs. Piper, Rm. 573, or Guidance. Thanks for caring and sharing!
