Approximately 22% of children in the United States live in households that are at
or below the poverty line. It’s always a struggle for the parents of these children
to purchase required school supplies as the school year begins. If you've ever seen
a list of required supplies, you know why.
During the month of August we will be collecting coins, bills and checks, and and
use those funds to buy gift cards for our school teachers. The gift cards will allow
them to purchase the exact items needed by children in their classes and other classes
as well. We will be collecting money throughout the month of August.
If you wish to participate, and you are in the Fort Myers area this month, simply
drop your contributions in the collection box that will be near the entrance of the
sanctuary every Sunday in August. If you are away, but wish to participate, send
your contribution to the church at
Peace Community Church
P.O. Box 60958
Fort Myers, Florida 33906
Be sure to indicate on your check that the contribution is for school supplies.
Working with Community Cooperative
In the months of August and September, we are also asking members of our church to
volunteer at the Community Cooperative Soup Kitchen on the first Wednesday of every
month from 9:30 am until about 12:00 noon.
Help for Nepal earthquake victims.
Our congregation recently sent $3,552 to The Salvation Army International Relief

directly by members of our church family. Included in that total was a $1,500 match
from our Helping Hand Fund. Please join us as we continue to pray for the people
