The Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SSVP) is having a “Backpack Drive” to collect basic school supplies for the children of needy families in our community. You can contribute in three ways:

1. Pick up a sponsorship card and purchase all the items listed on the card
2. Be a monetary sponsor and SSVP will purchase the items for you:

  $20 for a JK-Gr. 3 child (Bronze)
  $30 for a Gr. 4-8 child (Silver)
  $40 for a Gr. 9-12 child (Gold) 

3. Donate any amount into the SSVP donation box (located in the Church foyer) to help in purchasing the backpack bundles.

Sponsorship cards or monetary sponsorship envelopes can be picked up before or after all Masses on the weekend of June 16/17. Your donations will be collected in the Church foyer on the weekend of June 23/24. 

To receive an income tax receipt for the school supplies you donate to our Backpack Drive, please give us the store/cash register receipt for items purchased and provide your full name and address. Thank you for your contribution and generosity!
