This drive ended August 9th—and, boy, our parish was generous! The donations collected will relieve many parents who worry about how they will purchase school supplies for their children. Very special thanks to Barb Smyth for coordinating the drive here at St. Edward’s Church and to Jake Lynch for delivering the collected supplies to VEAP.
“Thank you to everyone for donating supplies. We received 44 colorful backpacks along with many notebooks and folders to help keep students on task. There will be a lot of colorful art projects due to the number of coloring and glue supplies. Considering our short collection time, we were a very successful drop-off point.”
