Back-to-School Supply Drive – July 27/28, Aug 3/4
We hope to fill 150 backpacks – all for children in great need.  Remember how wonderful it felt that first day of school to open a new box of crayons or to throw that new backpack over your shoulder?  Wont you give a struggling child that same gift … the gift of hope and a sense of opportunity?  Since education is the surest path out of poverty, your gift to these struggling families will bear fruit way beyond a backpack. (Benefitting children in Grades K-12 through: Passage Home, Inter-faith Food Shuttle and Our Lady of the Rosary Parish.
