REMINDER! COLLECTION IS THIS SATURDAY, June 23 FOR THIS BOOK DRIVE for the ELCA YOUTH GATHERING
Drop off window of time: 10:00 – 12:00 noon
Bethel Lutheran Church – 312 Wisconsin Avenue, Madison
If you have collected books for this in-gathering for the ELCA Youth Gathering, this Saturday is the drop off day.
Thank you to all congregations who have participated. You are doing what matters!
The Gathering has recognized the need to lift up literacy in Houston. In joining the Gathering’s Blast Off for Books campaign, you will help ensure bright futures for Houston’s students. The books you donate will be distributed at community book fairs, camps and other events around the city as part of the Gathering’s Service Learning experience. By putting books in the hand’s of Houston’s economically disadvantaged students, you can help change lives.
The list of books can be found on the ELCA’s website: http://bit.ly/BlastOffForBooks
We will be collecting books as a synod and will transport them to Houston with the synod buses. So, please begin collecting books and you may drop them off at Bethel Lutheran in Madison on June 23, 2018 from 10am-12pm and we will load them into vans and will drive them down. If your group is traveling on the synod bus, flying to Houston OR even if your congregation is not attending the Gathering you are welcome to collect books and drop them off in order to be included in this important in-kind offering.
