Faith Lutheran Church held their annual school supply distribution event last Wednesday. They hold this event every August and the event is sponsored by their School Supply Mission and supported by Faith members, community members, other Grantsburg churches and the Grantsburg Lion’s Club.
Any Grantsburg School District families who need assistance with getting ready for school are welcome at this event every year (Pre-K through high school students). Each student in the family will receive a new backpack and about 80% of their needed school supplies. In 2019, 151 students were helped.
Families are thankful for this mission and express this thanks to the workers. Even after the distribution is completed, they continue to get calls for school needs, and they always work hard to meet those calls. Donations are accepted all year as they continue to shop year-round.
John 15:12 says, “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” Faith continues to show this love by being the hands of Jesus here in Grantsburg.
