As you shop this summer, be sure to pick up some extra school supplies and maybe a backpack or two for our annual school-supply drive in August. This collection is part of our ongoing relationship with the mid-town branch of DHS, which serves many children in the foster-care system. Please bring your items to the table in the Gallery under the bulletin boards. Take-home supply lists are also available on the table and below. The packing of the backpacks will happen on Sunday, August 20, at 10:10 am in the Nativity Hall, and help from adults and children alike is welcome.
