A donation that included over 1,000 pairs of socks and underwear was received by our social work office to benefit district students. The donation was organized and delivered by representatives from Branson United Methodist Church. The church and its members participated in a Socktober event earlier this fall to collect these items for area school children. Additionally, cash donations were received from organizations partnering with the church to buy socks and underwear in bulk.
“This donation is such a blessing,” said Lisa Furtkamp, district social worker. “This donation will be used in our Christmas Assistance Program to provide students with the basics. We are grateful for the partnership with the Methodist Church and our community.”
