These programs enable us to provide educational resources that may be unaffordable through our regular budget. They offer exciting merchandise like computers, software, sports equipment, reference materials, science and art items, even musical instruments. Please continue your support of these programs by sending in your labels to the school office or by placing them in the church vestibule. If you have any questions, contact the school’s office. Also, please check labels for expiration dates. They can be sent in immediately and processed before they expire; there is no need to wait until you accumulate a quantity.
