School Supplies Ministry | All Backpacks Due at Church July 12

Backpacks and lists available June 9!

Our school supply ministry is taking donations for backpacks and school supplies to children of our Food Pantry families. This year we are also serving the children at the St. James School, a middle school that serves under-resourced families in the St. James neighborhood of Philadelphia, PA. The youth of St. Paul’s, Ivy will be spending a week in July to perform mission work at the school.

Your support of this ministry is crucial. Please consider either writing a check to St. Paul’s and earmarking it “school supplies,” or picking up a backpack this Sunday to fill with supplies. In order for backpacks to be delivered to the St. James School during the youth service trip, we ask that filled backpacks be returned to church no later than Friday, July 12. Extra backpacks will be distributed at the August Food Pantry. For more information, please contact Gina Thornton or Susan Yesawich.
