SCHOOL SUPPLY COLLECTION

The Worship Planning Group and Outreach Committee will once again sponsor the collection of school supplies for our area children in need.  However, we're doing something a litle different this year.  We're starting earlier in the summer because...

We will be donating backpacks and supplies to be distributed through Youth Mentoring Services to benefit children in Eastern Niagara County (outside the city of Lockport).  We will begin and end our collection of supplies earlier to allow time for Youth Mentoring to assemble the backpacks with supplies.

Our parish deadline for collection of items is Sunday, August 6th.

ITEMS NEEDED:

Notebooks (spiral)...Composition books...Notebook filler paper...3-Ring binders (1-1 1/2")...Pocket folders...Pens*...Pencils*...Colored pencils...Pencil top erasers...Highlighters...24 pack crayons (just that size please)...3x5 index cards...Scissors for older students...Backpacks for all ages.

Collection areas are set up in the Cloister and Narthex. 

*There is a great need for these items, as the students run out of these often throughout the year!!
