Spiral notepads for School Kids

posted Jun 30, 2013, 7:48 PM by Lorrie Slaymaker   [ updated Jun 30, 2013, 7:49 PM ]

St Matthew's is helping once again with the community's Ralph Bunch Kids. This program gathers school supplies for children in need.  The supplies are distributed, along with a backpack so that the first day of School and the weeks following no one is short of the tools to learn.  This year our goal is 100 spiral bound notepads.  We are looking for spiral notepads with wide rule and single subject.  Spiral pads can be dropped off at the church on Sunday.  The pickup day is the last Sunday of July, so we have four Sundays to build our stash.  Grab a pad or two or three on your next shopping trip.  Thank you!
