I have a pretty good sized pile of Sunday School leaflets, stickers, posters, teacher guides, etc. I was wondering if there's some sort of charity/mission group that could use them? It seems like such a waste to throw them out, even to recycle them, when they're unused. But they are in pretty small amounts, as they were extras. Any ideas?

Another church, maybe? Or possibly another non-profit that is faith-based?

Concordia Publishing House accepts them and donates them to mission churches, I think. They call it Concordia Gospel Outreach... you could try contacting them. Or maybe Augsburg has something similar?

(How's THAT for a Lutheran answer to a general question?)

Yeah, but would they take ELCA materials from Augsburg Fortress?

That's a really great point. I don't know why I forgot them.

Probably falls in the "Don't ask, don't tell" category!
