Ink Jet Cartridge Recycling
Please drop your used ink jet cartridges in the containers in the church office or narthex. You can also drop them in the blue tote on the side porch at the preschool. Recycling ink cartridges results in needed funding for the preschool!

Amazon Wish List
The preschool has created a wish list on Amazon, with many great items that they could use for the classroom. For December, apple juice and 13-gallon trash bags would really be appreciated. Click here to make a purchase. If you prefer to buy locally, your donations can be placed in the basket in the church narthex, in the blue bin on the side porch at the preschool, or they can be left with Bev in the church office.

Monetary donations are always appreciated by the preschool. Gift cards from Walmart, Amazon, and Giant are also accepted.
