Clothes for Honduras: Our Seekers' Class is once again asking our church to bring whatever summer items they won't be wearing again to the church. There is a bin and large box under the stairwell leading up to the narthex. Our Honduran neighbors desperately need children's clothing, shoes, etc. Also, they like children's books even if they're in English and math books as well. One more thing: small toys, especially stuffed animals.

The Mission Board is hosting a school supply drive to benefit the ACE Classroom Closet. Teachers can purchase a $30 membership to the closet and in return receive $1,000 worth of school supplies. This March we will collect items to re-stock the closet for local teachers. The high use items they are in need of are: wide rule/college notebook paper, paper towels, pop up disinfectant wipes, student pencil sharpeners, and Expo dry erase markers. The Classroom Closet also sponsors an open house for teachers where they can grab a wide variety of items. Items needed include: any type of gently used/new items (ie. books (all levels, Fiction/Non-Fiction, math workbooks, social studies, maps, science), Craft items, organizational carts, Dry erase bulletin boards, games, puzzles, and sports items (basketballs, dodge balls, tennis racquets, hula hoops, footballs, soccer balls, jump ropes). Contact Racheal Stimpson (rstimpso@vt.edu) with questions or concerns. Thank you for helping to support local educators and their classrooms! 

Resolve to Recycle Through ECC: We collect foam products for recycling! Bring in foam cups, plates, takeout containers, egg cartons, meat trays, and foam used to package electronics (no packing peanuts). The foam must bear the #6 symbol and be clean and dry. Put it in the box located in the big storage room just inside the CLC to the left. The foam will be transported to DART in Randleman for recycling. Let’s keep that foam out of the landfill! We collect CFLs and all types of batteries for recycling! Put them under the mailboxes in the downstairs hallway of the old building (across from the library). We collect electronics for recycling! Bring your
computers and peripherals, TVs, stereo equipment, electronic games and toys, phones, digital cameras, cables, small household appliances, etc. These go in or by the closet on the left just as you come into the downstairs hallway of the old building from the parking lot between the church and Pandora's Pies. Bring nothing heavier than 20 pounds, please. We’ll take them to the Guilford County Prison Farm to be recycled.

Join The Walking Group at ECC:  If you would be interested in walking, please come join us at 9 am on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Some days we may move outside! Questions? See Sharon!

Have you Noticed? The walls in the Community Life Center were recently painted and they look spectacular. To keep the room looking fresh, please remember that tape, command strips, or any type of adhesive is not allowed on the painted sheetrock walls. Also, gum and glitter are not permitted in the CLC. Thank you for your cooperation!
