The Board of Missions of the New Gloucester First Congregational Church is sponsoring an effort to collect school-related products for homeless teens of the Greater Lewiston area. Items most needed include backpacks, gift cards to area retail stores, flash drives, loose leaf binders and paper, spiral notebooks, highlighters, book cover material, pencils, pens, rulers, markers, colored pencils, tissues, and small containers of hand sanitizer.
You are asked to purchase some of the above items while you are shopping and place them in the ‘school’ box in the church office foyer on Sunday or Tuesday through Friday mornings. The drop-off is located at the green door between the two buildings at 19 Gloucester Hill Road. Collections will end in mid-September. The homeless teen program is run under the auspices of Lewiston High School. See www.ngucc.org or call 926-3260 for more information.
