All HCM gifts may be placed in the Commons Mission Box.

FOOD CLOSET NEEDS - Tuna, jam, cup of noodles, canned meals such as stew, chicken and noodles, canned Vienna sausages, apple juice, bottled water. We can also accept donations of unopened/non-expired milk, butter, juice, meats. For perishable items, please contact Elissa first. Think about helping our hungry right here at home.

ARE YOU WATCHING FOR THE SCHOOL SUPPLY SALES? Stores such as Staples, Office Depot, Target & Fred Meyer are great places to watch for good deals. Crayons for 50 cents, pencils for pennies, rulers for 25 cents, etc. If each family bought a few extra of the items on special each week, imagine the abundance we would have to share with those in need! We are collecting school supplies for our Lutheran World Relief Kits right now. Please help us gather needed items by purchasing when the costs are low. Items needed are:
- 70-sheet notebooks (wide or college-ruled)
- rulers with centimeters on one side and inches on the other
- pencil sharpener, student scissors
- unsharpened #2 pencils with erasers
- black or blue ballpoint pens (no gel ink), boxes of 16 or 24 crayons

HOPE SCHOOL ITEMS - We also collect items to help some of our Hope families with the additional costs of school. We are collecting items such as backpacks, lunchboxes, Clorox wipes, Kleenex, Colored Pencils and/or markers. Target cards are also appreciated to aid with the additional costs of items not donated.
