We are planning a Back to School Jubilee for students from families who might need a little extra help as the kids get ready to return to the classroom in the fall.  
We are working with the Elementary school social workers to get names of families who have need, AND we'll provide Capital Area Community Services with flyers, and put flyers out at the mobile home parks. Our goal is to provide at least 100 backpacks with school supplies on a first-reserved, first served basis. If we find we have greater need than we can supply, we will make every effort to resource those needs.  
If your organization would like to participate in this event by providing a resource, service, volunteers, or financial support, please just respond to this email (Rev. Suzanne Goodwin) and I'll get you connected with the correct coordinator.  
The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 20 from 10am - 1pm in the parking lot of Mason First United Methodist Church.  
If you have wholesale contacts who might be willing to donate or supply items at a reduced cost, please let me know as soon as possible. We'd like to meet the needs of these families especially in these financially trying times!
Thank you for your service and leadership in our community!
