St. John Lutheran's Back-to-School Giveaway Seeking Donations

St John Lutheran ChurchThe St. John Lutheran Church Back-to-School Giveaway Committee in Russell has announced the Back-to-School Giveaway will once again be held this year with the giving away of gently used and new clothing, along with new packages of socks and underwear.

School supplies for middle school and high school students will also be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Recipients of the Back-to-School Giveaway are school aged children (Preschool through High School Senior).

It is requested, while all donations are welcome, donated clothing needs to be in good shape (no holes or stains) and what school children will want to wear.

Packages of new socks and underwear are also needed.

Monetary gifts will also be accepted.

Monetary donations will be used to purchase socks, underwear and school supplies.

A box is located in the St. John Lutheran Church basement hallway underneath the coat rack to receive clothing donations. Socks, underwear, school supplies and monetary donations may be brought to the Church office during office hours.

School-age children benefit greatly from this cost-free program.

For more information on this program or to volunteer to help sort the clothing as it comes in, please contact the St. John Lutheran Church office at 785-483-5358.
