September Back to School Mission
Do you remember that spiffy, new feeling on that all-important first day of school, when you arrived dressed in a new outfit of clothes and new shoes? Each one of us kidsanted to look our best as we started a new school year; it was so important to our self-esteem. It is just as important today.
Our Old First Church deacons support the Calico Cat Back to School Mission, which provides an outfit of brand-new clothing from head to toe, for children from low income families in our area. New clothes, underwear, socks and new shoes promote a child’s self image in a positive way, helping less privileged children “fit in” with their other classmates.
If you would like to help us provide Back to School outfits for children in need through-out our local community, please make out a check to Old First Church, with Back to School written on the memo line. God bless you for your generosity!
