LEMS Partnership: We're Getting Ready, and You Can Help

Updated: Jul 23


Thanks to all of you who have expressed an interest in helping with the 2022 Lake Elkhorn Middle School Partnership. We're currently in the process of getting the supplies together for 125 students and will need your assistance in putting bags together for 50 students on Saturday morning, July 30th from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. Some of the boxes of supplies are heavy, so people with strong arms and backs are appreciated, but not required. The supplies for the remaining 75 students will be distributed over the course of the school year, as needed.


We also need help at the church on Tuesday, August 16th from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. to deliver the supplies to Lake Elkhorn Middle School. We are also in need of a truck or van to transport the supplies and people who are able to load and unload heavy boxes, so if you can help, please let us know.


We so appreciate the financial assistance that we have received thus far. In addition to school supplies, Melissa Shindell, principal at LEMS, has asked if we can support their staff appreciation pizza party on August 26th and possibly buy the staff spirit wear as we did last year. If you would like to support these activities that help both students and staff start the school year with enthusiasm, you may give in any of the following ways:


  • If you’d like to write a check, please make sure you write “LEMS school supplies” on the memo line, drop it off at the church office, or mail it in.

  • For giving online via computer/tablet, you'll find our "Support Christ Church" button at the top of every page of our website, or you can click here. On the secure form, choose "LEMS" from the FUND drop-down menu and write "school supplies" on the MEMO line.

  • To give via text, simply text CECGIVING to 73256 using your mobile device, and you'll immediately receive a link to our secure form. Click the link, choose "LEMS" from the FUND drop-down menu, and write "School Supplies" on the MEMO line so that your donation is used as you wish. (Note: This number will never send you unsolicited texts. To cancel further messages, text STOP. If you need assistance with text giving, text HELP. Standard text message and data rates may apply).


If you have questions about our LEMS partnership or would like to help on either of those days, please email us at lemspc@christchurchcolumbia.org.


Thank you!
