We continue our outreach with the Interfaith Refugee Ministry (IRM), providing back-to-school supplies, including book bags. To date, there are 29 students we are supporting.
The “Apple Tree” will be outside on the porch during worship services. To participate, select one of the “apple tags” that list needed book bags and supplies. Additional donations (notebooks, paper, crayons, etc.) are welcomed if you do not feel comfortable following the listed requests. In addition, people can shop remotely for book bags and supplies, then have either have them delivered or drop them off at IRM (1913 Trent Blvd., New Bern, NC 28560).
If you prefer, you can contact Rebecca Liberty at 252.670.7601 directly to choose an apple tag. Please return items on or before August 16th.
It is especially important that students have these materials since the first nine weeks of instruction will be virtually, at home.
Many thanks in helping these children in beginning a new school experience. Contact Rebecca with any questions or for more information.
