Collecting Supplies for Martin Luther King, Jr., Elementary School

Community Connections

updated July 31, 2014

Last year we provided school supplies for 120 fifth graders plus lots of extras at Satus Elementary School in Wapato.  Donations included 2-pocket folders, spiral notebooks, pencils, erasers, and glue sticks, plus some extra odds and ends.  We also gratefully received a large donation of school supplies from United Way of Central Washington.

Last Year’s Gifts to Satus Elementary School

We believe that when we give to help those in need, we are giving to God.

“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done” (Proverbs 19:17, NIV).

We believe that those who give receive an even greater blessing than those who receive the gift, just as Jesus said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35, NIV).
