School days are right around the corner. As part of our local missions outreach, we are pleased to provide school backpacks for the children housed at the local transitional shelters, Monadnock Area Transitional Shelter (MATS) and Shelter From the Storm. Backpacks are currently being ordered for 15 children at these homes. Our mission as the church is also to provide school supplies to insert in the backpacks.
Please return the supplies by August 22 for packing purposes. You may drop them off in the drop box located at the bottom of the ramp at 43 Concord St, Peterborough.
If you would rather contribute a check, you may make it out to the Peterborough United Methodist Church with the memo line reading: School Backpacks. Please bring these to the church or mail them to reach the church at 43 Concord St Peterborough NH 03458, by August 22.
Thank you for your generous help with our local missions project. For questions, please contact the church office.
