Good Stuff in TEC: Ohio

Church donations delivered to children at Lake Elementary

New Life Episcopal Church in Uniontown delivered hundreds of dollars worth of school supplies, toys and breakfast foods to the elementary school students of Lake Local Schools.

The church chose local school kids as a new giving project for 2008. Members of the congregation purchased school supplies and other needed items throughout the summer. Lake Guidance Counselor Paula Whetstone, who developed the list of needed items for the project, was present when the donated items were collected at the church on Aug. 24 at the Sunday Service.

“I couldn’t believe how much was donated!” she said delighted. “This meets an important need for the many kids who will experience distressing financial or emotional life situations this year.”

Children from Lake, Hartville and Uniontown elementary schools made posters to thank the church for the effort, and presented them to the church members who delivered the donations.
Lynn Gorman, a member of the church who lives in Medina, was enthusiastic about the posters, which were signed by many kids from two of the three elementary schools. “These posters are awesome! Everyone at church will be thrilled to actually see something tangible from the kids,” she said.
