Hands and Feet of Jesus Ministries

School Supply Drive

Many families in the local community cannot afford to provide school supplies for their children and we want to help. Below is a list of supplies that we are collecting to share with students in need at Howard Elementary. You will notice that some of the supplies are listed by their brand name and educators tell us that is because even though they may cost a little more, those brands provide better bang for the buck.

A collection box for these supplies is in the main hallway. The deadline for bringing in supplies is Sunday, August 18th. Carla Tappero will be delivering them to Howard during the week of the 19th, as teachers are returning to prepare for the school year.

Supply List

12 pack Ticonderoga brand pencils, 24 count Crayola crayons; Pencil top erasers; large erasers; 12 count Crayola color pencils; 8 count Crayola color markers (washable); glue sticks; bottles of white glue; rulers; pencil pouches; red, blue, yellow and green pocket folders, notebook paper; pens; solar calculators; 3 ring binders; pocket dividers for binders; 3×5 lined note cards; spiral notebooks; Kleenex tissues; backpacks.


Clothing Give Away

Another Hands and Feet of Jesus ministry we have coming up in September is a clothing give away. We are specifically looking for warm clothes and coats, for kids through adults. Please be looking through your closets to see if you might have some gently used clothing that you would like to donate. More details to come.
