During the month of September, the SONLiFE kids of Willoughby Church will be collecting NEW school supplies for children living in refugee camps around the world and for children/families living in Langley who struggle to afford school supplies.
You can participate in any one of the following ways:
1. Make a cash/cheque donation to SONLiFE. These will be used to buy supplies
2. Purchase new school supplies and drop them off at the church.
3. Pick up a ready-made drawstring bag available in the church lobby, fill with the requested supplies and return the filled bag to the church.
What's in a School Supply Kit? (NEW items only)
- Any combination of 4 spiral or perforated-pages notebooks (about 21.5 cm x 27 cm) totaling 500–600 pages, OR 7 spiral or perforated-pages notebooks (80 pages each; about 21.5 cm x 27 cm)
- 8 new unsharpened pencils
- 1 ruler (flat, good quality; must indicate 30 cm; inch markings optional)
- 12 coloured pencils (in packaging)
- 1 large eraser
- 2 new black or blue ballpoint pens
- 1 small all-metal pencil sharpener, one or two holes. All-metal sharpeners can be found online Amazon.ca or in the art supply section of retail stores like Staples. Plastic case pencil sharpeners are not accepted because these are poor quality and do not last as long. If you cannot find all-metal sharpeners please pack the kits without them and we will add the sharpeners.
Bring all donated supplies to the church by Sunday, Sept. 29, 2019.
