Third Presbyterian Church, a Knox mission partner, needs back-to-school supplies for children from the church and surrounding neighborhood. The need is greater than ever as Third’s ministries are reaching more children than ever! Volunteers from Third hope to provide backpacks and supplies for more than 100 children. You may leave supplies in the boxes near the Michigan Avenue desk anytime until noon, August 7, or you may write a check to Knox and indicate it is for Third Church school supplies. Needed items include backpacks (for children and youth of all ages), binders with dividers, crayons, filler paper (wide and college rule), folders, glue sticks, highlighters, index cards, markers, pencils, pencil bags, pens (blue, black, a few red), scientific calculators, scissors, and spiral notebooks.
