PLASTIC BAGS NEEDED
There are some ladies at LSUMC who needs your help with plastic bags. They are crocheting mats for the homeless in Waco out of the bags. The bags are cut, tied together to make "plarn" and then crocheted. It takes anywhere from 5 to 7 hundred bags to make one mat. The mats can be used for sleeping on, keeping possessions dry, etc. If you have any extra bags, (can be any color) please drop them off at the office……thanks in advance for your help.

Box Tops

Our Partner in Education, Lake Air Montessori, collects these Box Tops for Education. They receive cash in return for their efforts. Their last collection earned them almost $900! They can use this money for any need the school may have. Please watch your packaging and clip them out. There is a container in the Fellowship Hall to collect them. They will be taken to the school by one of our volunteers from Lake Shore UMC. Thank you for your help.

Campbell Soup Labels
Please don’t forget to save your Campbell soup labels. There is a basket in the Fellowship Hall for the collection of the labels that will benefit the McCurdy School in the purchasing of equipment and vans for the school.
