Back to school means pencils, pens, and NEW SCHOOL SNEAKERS! New Sneakers in the right size, such a given for most of us, are such a gift for a homeless child. Signup at the Missions table during fellowship hours to buy a pair for a child in the Inspirica Afterschool Program. Inspirica focuses on moving families out of poverty. While the children are in the afterschool program, parents are working on employment and life skills and eventually assisted with job searches and obtaining affordable housing. Some members of our congregation volunteer at the Afterschool Program with homework help or enrichment programs. This wonderful organization is working hard to change Stamford for the better. Please join us in the sneaker drive! Sneakers may be returned to the box in Smith Hall by 10/2. Contact: Joellen Ford at or Marianna Kilbride at
