Thank you, First Church! Your generosity in July helped us exceed our goal for Pickle Elementary staff and student support this school year. To date, we have raised $8570. 
With a portion of these funds, we have already hosted a back-to-school breakfast for teachers and staff. As a show of our gratitude for all that they do, we gave each person a goody bag assembled by our Vacation Bible School children, which included a gift card and other treats.
Those who decorated also had a chance to view the space we will transform into Pickle’s new Teacher Mindfulness Lounge. Stay tuned for more details as we begin that work soon. If you are interested in helping with that project, contact Pastor Cathy Stone.
