Please join us in donating school supplies to Gaywood Elementary School for the upcoming school year. Items students need include pens, pencils, colored pencils, erasers, markers, crayons, highlighters, scissors, composition books, construction paper, glue sticks, and art supplies. Teachers need printer paper, and everyone needs hand soap, hand sanitizer, tissues, and paper towels. Donated items can be placed in the green plastic bin located in the Narthex. We will collect donations from now through Sunday, August 30. On behalf of the students of Gaywood, thank you for you generosity. If you have any questions, please see Randy or Donna Haselton.
