July Giving Barrel

Camp Curtain will be the recipient of our July Giving Barrel. Please help us support this mission partner this summer.

While many of us don’t want to think about fall being our next season, along with it is the start of school for many.  Camp Curtin Academy which has been  our mission in Harrisburg School District will be opening its doors in August for the new school year. Our Mission Committee has again decided to support the students by  donating new school uniforms.  We’re starting earlier this year so we can deliver the clothes at the beginning of the school year.  We thank you in advance for helping us fulfill this need.  What child doesn’t like something new to wear at the start of school?

The specifics of the uniforms are much the same with solid colored 3-button polo shirts and khaki material long pants. We were told by social worker Gia Johnson that the “kids” prefer short sleeved shirts.
Girl sizes for shirts and pants are 10/12, 12/14, 16/18.  Junior girl sizes for pants are 2, 5, 8, 10. Shirt sizes are Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large.
Boy sizes for pants are 14/16 and 18/20.  Shirt sizes are Medium, Extra Large and a few 2X Large.

If anyone has any questions, would like help with their shopping or wants to  make a donation, please contact Alicelyn Sleber.
Again, thank you for your help to “fill our Barrel”.
