Each summer, the parish raises money and collects specific school supplies to support students in local schools. The list of school supplies needed is provided by the schools. When items are on sale, volunteers use the financial donations to shop for the items identified by the various schools. Once the supplies are collected, parishioners gather to fill the backpacks and deliver them to the schools where they are distributed at the beginning of the school year. Approximately 150 backpacks are purchased, filled and distributed to children in the nearby schools.
Volunteers are needed to find the sales, shop for school supplies, pack and transport the backpacks to the schools.
