Back-to-School Shoe Drive for Foster Children Deadline: Sunday, July 21

2 Ways to Donate:

or
2. Go to our website to donate, and we will purchase a pair of shoes for you! Select "Foster Children Shoe Drive" to donate:https://faithumcspring.org/donations-payments

Located in the Spring Area, Arrow Child and Family Ministries works with vulnerable children and families in the areas of children welfare, educational services and foster care.

One great need that they have as the school year approaches is for new tennis shoes. Most of the need is for boys and men's tennis shoes, ranging in sizes from 5 toddler to a men's 13. The most popular sizes are boys 4 to 9. Girl's tennis shoes are also needed from a size 5 toddler to girl's size 3. We are hoping to have at least 120 pairs of shoes to give to them by July 21. (this is also the donation deadline)

The Distribution event is scheduled for Saturday, August 3 and volunteers will also be needed for that event. You can start to bring your shoes now and put them in the office area. We will be reminding you along the way, but if you know you would like to volunteer on August 3, just give us your name(s) by emailing jennifer@faithumcspring.org.

 


School Supplies for Boys and Girls Country

Summer is almost over and it's time for Back to School! Each year Faith UMC helps support Boys and Girls Country and a local elementary school by providing school supplies. Stop by the foyer outside of the Sanctuary on Sunday to pick up a paper sack with certain school supplies written on it. Once you have purchased your supplies, please return the sack to Faith by Sunday, August 4. Thank you for your support!

 

Boys and Girls Country is a Christian home providing children from families in crisis with love, security, a sense of self-worth, and opportunities to prepare them for a successful life. For more information on Boys and Girls Country, go to www.boysandgirlscountry.org.
