Many students in the Bloomington, Richfield and Edina school districts need help filling their backpacks this fall. Although plans for in-person learning are currently under discussion, students will still need school items for the fall. Join VEAP in supporting their academic success by making sure they have all the supplies they need for the year. St. Edward will be collecting the donations for VEAP, who will distribute the supplies to the school districts with the support of other local faith communities, businesses and partners.
Backpacks and scientific calculators are high-demand items and the most impactful. If you are able, please consider making these a focus of your donations. Traditional supplies like notebooks, paper, pens and pencils are needed as well. Please make sure all items are new.
Please use the bins marked with the “School Supply Donations” signs for these donations, which should be kept separate from any VEAP food donations.
