Box tops for Education
by Suzie Mailman
If you buy grocery (and other) products that come with 'Box tops for Education' they are valuable! We have several members who are saving them and then sending the coupons to not only Christian organizations but also many of our local schools. These groups gather them, submit them, and then receive money to purchase supplies of many types. If you are interested in finding out which products have these coupons, use this link to find out: http://www.boxtops4education.com/earn/ participating-products
Please place them into Suzie Mailman's or Carolyn Swanson's mailboxes when you bring them to church.
It is a little late this year, but hopefully will make for great weather. Also we have a new location - The Home Depot Backyard.
Please see our team page here: http://engage.acfb.org/
You can register to walk on this page (or you can donate to our team if you do not wish to walk but want to support us.)
You can also donate by cash or check by placing in my box at church, but keep in mind the check will not clear until after the event. Checks should be made out to Hunger Walk/Run.
Also, if you are walking or running, I have lots of fundraising envelopes, so please let me know if you need one.
Thank you and God Bless!

We continue to collect donations for “Operation Smile” – a medical charity that provides free surgeries for children and young adults in developing countries who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate or other dental and facial conditions - for Sunday School Missions through December 2018. With just $240 we can provide surgery for one child. We have collected over $1000 so far and are excited to help provide new smiles for these children and young adults. Thank you to all who have donated thus far!

KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR ANNOUNCEMENTS
We had a successful Rummage Sale People saw our announcement in Tucker Patch and on Craig's List, and some folks from St. Mark and our neighborhood came and shopped.
Mary-Martha would like to thank all of the people who helped set-up, pack-up, clean up and set-up for Sunday after the sale.
We sent the items that were left overs to Kidney Foundation. So many purposes were served by the Rummage Sale. The Mary-Martha Society raised funds for the bulk of their projects for the year. Finally, members of St. Mark had a place to get rid of things they no longer wanted
We made more than $1100 on the sale Thanks for supporting the Mary-Martha Society of the LWML!
