Tools for School

Each year, All Saints partners with St. Paul Lutheran Church in Ironton, Ohio, to provide children of Lawrence County with school supplies and backpacks. Nearly half of the students' families are unable to buy the supplies needed for school, and teachers continually express their gratitude to St. Paul's, and in turn churches like ours, for providing the necessary supplies to help their students get off to a good start in the fall. During July, help is needed to purchase, count and sort supplies, pack backpacks and deliver them to the children in Ironton the first Saturday in August.

Collection: through July 31 at All Saints

Giveaway: sign up for our email list for our August giveaway date in St. Paul's, Ironton
