Come join us in providing back-packs and school supplies to the New LIFE School in the Bronx!
All August long, we’ll collect the items that come in and display them around the altar, until in early September, they’ll be picked up and driven to the school, to hopefully give a lot of children a better start into the new school year.
The New Life School is a state/publicly funded special education program for students diagnosed with learning, speech and psychiatric disabilities. The school serves children between the ages of 11-21, in grades 6-12. It is part of Lutheran Social Services of New York.
So come in, pick a back-pack leaflet in the Narthex that will explain what items to buy, and join this worthy cause! And we get to enjoy a colorfully decorated altar all August long in the process!
