Operation Homework Light planned

In the darkest months of the year, children will be learning from home as COVID-19 spreads in our area. Families are trying to find study space for each of their children, and some students are working in the basements of their homes, which might be the only quiet place to hear the teacher’s lesson.

Children who are used to going to bright, cheery, colorful classrooms may now be sitting in dark basements for at least five hours a day to keep up with their lessons and schoolwork online.

Operation Homework Light is a project to collect donated lamps and school supplies to brighten a child’s study area.

Zions Evangelical Lutheran Church in Weatherly is collecting lamps, with a working light bulb, and school supplies to distribute to any child/family in need of more light for their study space at home.

Dates for distribution will be announced soon. Please remember to wear a mask when delivering your lamps and supplies to the church annex, 333 Third St.

We have both morning and evening donation hours.

If you have any questions, please leave a message on the church answering machine, which is checked each day, at 570-427-4113.

Donations will be collected from 7-9 a.m. and 6-7 p.m. on the following days:

Wednesday through Friday and Dec. 14-18.
