Many students in our community need help filling a backpack to ensure success during the school year. Every child should start the school year feeling good about themselves and it helps to have access to the tools and supplies they need! From July 13 thru July 31 the Social Justice & Charity Commission at St. Edward will collect school supplies and deliver them to VEAP, who will distribute them to the schools. Next time you’re out shopping and walk by the school supplies, consider picking up a couple of these items for donation:
- USB Thumb Drives
Pens, Spiral Notebooks, Two-pocket Folders, #2 Pencils, Markers, Colored Pencils, Crayons (24 ct.), Rulers, Pencil Boxes and Pouches, Highlighters, Erasers, Glue Sticks, Glue Bottles, Scissors
Donations can be dropped off in the marked bins in the church foyer beginning July 13. Please note: All school supplies must be new.
