SUMC School Supply Store

Sellersburg UMC will again be hosting our annual School Supply Store to provide necessary supplies for students who struggle to afford the long list of materials needed to be effective in school. 

The store will be open to the community on

Aug. 4th and run from 9:00AM -11:00AM. 

Students come in to “shop” for the free supplies they need to complete their school lists. 

During the month of June our congregation will be collecting supplies so that the store is stocked and ready for a huge crowd.  We have served 80 to 100 students each year we have hosted the event.  We need a huge outpouring of love from the congregation to make this year’s event a success.  You may also donate financially to the project.  However you can issue a check to the church anytime with the memo: “School Supply Store” and the funds will go towards this important project.
