The 2nd annual Lace Up with Love INC is off and running!  Registrations from students-in-need have been pouring in to receive their new sneakers before the start of the 2015/16 school year.  Now all we need are NEW sneakers to put on all of their feet.  Like last year, we anticipate needing 500+ pairs in various sizes from children’s size 11 through adult size 15 for boys, and children’s size 11 through adult size 12 for girls.  Name-brand athletic sneakers are preferred for quality and durability.  New sneaker donations may be placed in the Love INC basket in the Narthex through August 12.  Monetary donations are greatly appreciated and may be dropped off in the Church Office or given to Susan Schulteis or Patty Woodring. Over 100 volunteers are needed to prepare for and fit all of the registered students on August 13, 14, and 15.  Sign up is easy.  Visit Loveincgreaterhershey.org or call Love INC 835-0101.  The smiles on the children’s faces last year are unforgettable and the appreciation of the parents, heartwarming!  Help Love INC make a positive impact in the lives of those in our community!
