August School Supply Drive
August is here and the St. Paul’s Lazarus Ministry is once again collecting school and personal care items to help local students and families in need prepare to go back to school. Items can be found at any store and to make it easy for Amazon users, we have a wishlist on Amazon. When shopping on Amazon consider signing up for Amazon Smile which donates a portion of your order directly to the Lazarus Ministry. See below for more information about how to sign up.
Items most in need are deodorant, especially for men, toothpaste/brushes, detergent, and feminine pads. A list of supplies being collected can be found below. Items can be brought to the the 3rd floor of Wilmer Hall, the St. Paul's office, during the week between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. You may also leave supplies in the back of Upper Norton when attending services on Sunday.
Items purchased through Amazon will be delivered directly to St. Paul’s - please remember to select the "gift registry address" when checking out.
