The Bowie Food Pantry distributed 100 backpacks last year to children Pre-K through Grade 12. The families bring in the supply lists from their children’s schools and backpacks are filled with needed supplies. The Pantry is now collecting supplies for this school year and a list of needed items is located on the bulletin board in the main hallway. Please place all school supplies in the shopping cart located in the coat room. Thank you.
PLEASE NOTE: Tuesday Morning Bible Study and Angel Gang will NOT meet on Tuesday, August 11, 2015. They will resume on Tuesday, August 18, 2015.
Free books – We are in the process of cleaning out the library (room 123) and have been going through books. Duplicates and outdated resources have been taken off the shelves and are in boxes in the coatroom through August 31, 2015. If you are interested in looking through them and taking any home, please help yourself!
