Could you donate a package of new underwear or socks to a Missoula child in need this summer? St. Paul Lutheran Church is continuing plans to host its Gary Turbak Memorial Back-to-School Clothing Project in August. The church welcomes children ages 4 to 12 whose family have been referred by local social service agencies to shop for back-to-school clothing in the church basement's “store.” Last year, more than 350 children received a pair of jeans, a top, a pair of shoes, and a package each of socks and underwear. Holy Spirit is among a number of local churches that have donated new packages of socks and underwear in previous years. Because Holy Spirit is closed, parishioners are invited to drop off their donations at St. Paul. The church is located at 202 Brooks Street. Parishioners can drop off their donations from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, just inside the doors to the office/education building wing that is opposite the church sanctuary. (The doors to the right when you are looking at the courtyard.) The entry hall is open but the church office and sanctuary are closed. The drive will continue through the end of July. Thanks for your generosity!
