Some church members in Katy are finding a new use for old jeans -- all for a good cause. Volunteers at Living Word Lutheran Church are taking old, donated pairs of jeans and sewing them into book bags and then with about $1,000 in donated money, the church plans to buy school supplies and stuff the bags with school supplies and send to Haiti, Peru, Africa, and other places where children are in need.

For more information on the jean school bag project and to volunteer, contact the church office at 281-392-2300 or visit www.livingwordkaty.org .
