Will Rogers Elementary School Partnership

For the past several weeks, members of our Circle Drive church family have responded to our request for school supplies for Will Rogers Elementary School.  Our church has been incredibly blessed to be in partnership with this school, which is only about one mile south of our church campus.

Our partnership coordinator, associate pastor Ed McGee, devoted his time on Monday morning to compile a list of back-to-school donated items.  Here is a list, with an understanding that more items continue to come in:

106 pkg. crayons
44 pkg. glue sticks
195 pink erasers
10 pkg. highlighters
53 boxes colored pencils
107 dozen #2 pencils
240 composition/spiral notebooks
102 folders
35 back packs
236 pairs socks
12 pairs shoes
192 pairs underwear
28 pairs pants
20 shirts
5 barrettes

5 water color paint sets
12 pkg. broad markers
5 pkg. fine markers
24 pkg. paper
32 bottle of glue
4 rulers
9 plastic boxes
11 pairs scissors
5 3-ring binders
5 pkg. cap erasers
5 pencil sharpeners
4 gel pens
12 pens
1 pkg. construction paper

I praise the name of JESUS for the remarkable generosity of our Circle Drive church family!  These supplies promise to meet some serious needs of many of the students in the school!  Ed McGee invited me to deliver the boxes of school supplies, which filled the bed of his pick-up truck!  It was such a joy to deliver the supplies, as well as know we were being "the hands and feet of JESUS" in meeting the needs of children.  I praise our great GOD for the way He continues to work through His people called Circle Drive!!!  We are so blessed to have this on-going partnership with Will Rogers Elementary School!!
