Special Service Project to Collect Items for "Welcome Home of Chattanooga" 
Please join us for our annual Grandparents' Day program on Mar. 9! Our theme is "Loving and Serving Our Neighbors." We will be reading scriptures and singing songs that center around loving our neighbors, having a servant heart, living in peace and charity and taking care of our community. The middle school handbell choir will be playing during the program as well.

In addition to our special program, we will be collecting money and items to donate to  Welcome Home of Chattanooga - a facility in East Ridge that cares for the aging who are homeless and terminally ill.  Welcome Home also has a ministerial aspect to their organization, although they are not affiliated with a particular church. They are in dire need of basic supplies. 

If you are able, please bring one or more of the following items to donate to Welcome Home anytime between now and Mar. 9:

Kindergarten and Middle School (6th - 8th grade): 

ground coffee

powered coffee creamer

coffee filters

1st/2nd grade: 
paper towels 
toilet paper

3rd - 5th grade: 
personal care wipes 
anti-bacterial cleaning wipes

All of the students are coloring pictures for the Welcome Home residents during music class as well.

We will have a special blessing of the donated items during the program on Grandparents' Day, as well as an offering that will be donated to Welcome Home. All the children, including Pre-K3/4, are participating in the musical portions of the program, beginning at 8:45 a.m. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions:  [email protected]. I look forward to seeing you there! 

God Bless, 
Sarah Harr
