LAKE VIEW CAMP / ANGEL TREE needs our help again getting just a few supplies for filling some backpacks so they have enough for the summer. They are in need of 100 towels, 100 notebooks, and 100 bottles of shampoo. They currently have enough of the other supplies that we would normally purchase so they only need these 3 items.

On the table in the basement and the narthex are cards that you can pick up for these items. You are welcome to take one of each or as many as you would like to purchase of them. There are 100 of each so if the cards are all gone the need has been met.

The time frame is a little short again so could you please have the supplies back in two weeks, by July 15th. If you have questions see or call Brent or Susan Pierson 641-780-3456.
