It’s hard to believe, but the school is just around the corner. This year, New Hope is looking for new ways to support the local school by collecting school supplies for classes and teachers in Demmit and Helke Elementary schools. We will be doing two supply drives this school year, one that starts now and will run through Sunday, August 14. The second drive will take place in the month of December, and will help replenish supplies for teachers and students at an important time in the school year.

Below is a list of supplies given to us by Demmit and Helke. The items in bold were suggest by both schools, and seem to be of highest priority.

We are hoping to build relationships with the schools in order to help support in ways that allow them to better focus on serving and teaching the kids in the neighborhood. It’s a great opportunity to love our neighbors and serve the community as the people of Jesus!
