Backpacks for a Smooth Start to School
Although the school year has just ended, it is a great time to think about the children in Monmouth County who will need supplies when they go back to school in September. Once again this year, we will help children here in Monmouth County begin the school year with needed materials and supplies by participating in our backpack program. There are children who come to school without the needed supplies such as pencils and notebooks, delaying or impeding their fresh start to the new school year. We hope to make a difference for some of these children. Please consider providing a child with some needed supplies such as:
Sturdy backpack; pencils, pens, crayons, markers, colored pencils, highlighters, zippered pencil case, spiral notebooks (no binders), homework notebooks, child scissors, glue sticks, marble notebooks, erasers, and other young child specific supplies.
Please bring the backpacks or supplies to church any day before Sunday September 1st (Feel free to take an empty backpack-FILL IT- and bring it back) Backpacks and supplies will be blessed and delivered to during the first week of school. Please help us help some children again this year. Your generosity is appreciated.
