Notebook Paper
Till the end of July

The Ministries Committee is working together with the South Georgia Partnership to End Homelessness to provide school supplies.  Christ Church has been asked to provide notebook paper (Wide Rule and College Rule) for the 1,000 backpacks.  We are only in need of notebook paper.  Other organizations are collecting certain items as well.  There will be a box in the nave of the Sanctuary for the rest of July.  If you would prefer to make a monetary donation to help this cause, please make checks to Christ Church and denote that it is for notebook paper.
