Community Care Team

15th Annual School Supply Collection

Our collection will take place during the month of June, and will operate as it did last year during COVID-19. The Community Care Team will use our own funds to acquire $2,000 of gift cards to purchase school supplies for Immanuel

Lutheran School, Lutheran North High School, Concordia Seminary Food Pantry, and Christian Friends of New Americans (CFNA).

Any members who would like to contribute to the collection during June can mail a check to church or place a check in a plain white envelope, labeled “School Supplies” with your envelope number (to insure proper credit on your giving statement) in the offering plate. Please make checks

payable to Immanuel Lutheran Church and write “School Supply Collection” in the memo line. $25 buys a set of supplies, but we will gratefully accept contributions of any size. We will give $500 in Visa gift cards (purchased through PSCE) to Immanuel Lutheran School and Lutheran North to purchase supplies as they see fit. We’ll use $1,000 in gift cards to purchase school supplies for Concordia Food Pantry and

CFNA, and we’ll deliver the supplies to them near the end of July, in time for the start of school.

Please contact Diane Tallyn (314-910-2032) or Suzanne Hough (314-346-6310) with any questions. Thank you for helping students get their school year off to a great start!
