The Arkansas Valley Christian Mission is preparing for its annual school supplies outreach to about 100 Mission family children, grades K-12. Families are asked to pre-register their children for school supplies during the Mission’s regular open hours. It is very important that Mission children be pre-registered for this program. Those pre-registered may pick up their supplies on Aug. 13, 14 or 16. Those not pre-registered may pick up their supplies on Aug. 16.

The Mission is most in need of new small backpacks, 1- or 2-inch three-ring binders as well as monetary donations towards school supplies. Supply items needed include: Hardcover composition note books, crayons, watercolor paints, four-pack dry erase markers, extra fine black sharpies, both broad and fine tip colored markers, large glue sticks and five-pack tab dividers.

Supplies and donations may be taken to the Mission, 122 Cottonwood Ave., during open hours on or before Aug. 9. Call 719-395-9321 for more information.

Thank you everyone for your continued support of Arkansas Valley Christian Mission.
