Wilderness Outreach Missions (WOM) is collecting school supplies for the kids in our community who need assistance getting ready for the coming school year. Last year we were able to help 86 children obtain school supplies.
If you would like to help out, please bring items to Wilderness Community Church between Sun., July 27th and Sunday, August 10th. WOM will collect the supplies and provide them to families during the August food pantry on August 16th. A list of the items generally needed are provided below:
Crayons (24 ct. box) Scissors (Safety)
Spiral Notebooks Glue Sticks
Pencils (No. 2) Colored Pencils
Loose Leaf Paper Kleenex box
Pencil Boxes Back Packs
Composition Books Index cards
Pocket folders w/ fasteners 1” 3 ring binder
Large erasers Highlighters
Dry erase markers
Many of these items are currently on sale at office supply stores, pharmacies, grocery stores, discount stores, and other retail locations you may commonly visit. Please leave your donations in the WOM box in the Welcome Center. If you know of a family or child who needs assistance, please let us know so we can make arrangements to assist them. We can also arrange to pick-up supplies, and monetary donations can be used to purchase supplies.
