Kids’ Country Christmas Project
We will be collecting books and puzzles for the Boomerang Backpack program this Christmas. These gifts will be going home with the students (ages K-6th grade) as a gift before Christmas break. There will be a collection box in the Kids’ Country hallway. Please bring your donations by Sunday, Dec. 15th.

New Life is in charge of filling the Topeka Food Pantry for the month of December. Many families in our community depend on this help from the Food Pantry!
