Christ the King Collecting School Supplies for Disadvantaged Students

Aug. 16, 2012

Christ the King Lutheran Church, 1600 S. Genesee St., Delafield, is collecting school supplies for students at Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.   Donations may be dropped off in designated boxes inside the church lobby from now through the end of August.

All NEW school supplies are needed, especially colored pencils, markers, crayons, scissors, backpacks for young children, glue, pencils, pens, notebooks, folders, and construction paper.

“The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is among the poorest of Indian reservations in the U.S.,” said Pastor Gary Grindeland. “By donating school supplies that they could otherwise not afford, we will help them educate their youth and reduce their burden of providing for the young people of the tribe.”

Pine Ridge Reservation is located in southwest South Dakota.  It is home to the Oglala Sioux Tribe.

An ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church of America) church, Christ the King has nearly 1,000 parishioners and welcomes new members.  Summer worship is held on Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 9 a.m.  Saturday worship is held outdoors, weather permitting.  

For information on Christ the King, call (262) 646-2343 or visit www.ctkdelafield.org.
