Pop Tabs for Ronald McDonald House

Box Tops for Education
You can help your schools just by clipping a little coupon off the package of so many things that you buy and use around your home. Cereal of all sorts, Pillsbury, Yoplait, Hamburger Helper, Old El Paso, Betty Crocker, Kleenex, Ziploc products and more have little red/pink coupons on them. Please take a an extra moment and clip these to help make our schools better. A collection basket for these coupons is located on the wooden collection box near the west entrance to the church. A list of products is on the bulletin board at the church.

Soup Labels for Shaner Elementary School A collection basket for these coupons along with the Box Tops for Education is located on the wooden collection box near the west entrance to the church.

Lutheran World Relief

The last session of the season to tie quilts will be Thursday, September 14th. We plan to start tying again after the first of the year. During the weekend of September 30/October 1st, the quilts will be on display in the worship center.

Social Ministries committee is instead asking for donations to help LWR cover the cost of shipping quilts,
school bags and other donated items. Last year the OSLC Piecemakers made 72 quilts for LWR. Each quilt
costs approximately $2.25 to ship. A school bag costs approximately $1.40. If you have any questions, just ask a member of the committee.
