Back-to-School School Supply Drive
This summer, our parish will be teaming up with FOCUS North America, an Orthodox service organization, to collect school supplies for needy children from a local school. How can you help? See Lynn or Kim Voulgarakis during the coffee hour to pick up a pre-purchased backpack. Each backpack will have an envelope and a packing list inside of it. Place a $10 donation in the envelope and purchase the supplies on the list. Put the envelope and supplies in the backpack and bring them back to Lynn or Kim at church. So simple! The deadline to return the backpacks is July 15th, so hurry up and get yours today! What a great and easy way to shine the light of God into the world that needs it so badly!

In addition, GAMA, (Greek American Motorcycle Association) will offer 4 scholarships to campers who are attending Session 2 ONLY. (These are NOT NEED-BASED Scholarships. They are open to EVERYONE attending Session 2, June 24-30, 2018, to apply.)
