23rd Annual Backpack Drive

The St. Mary's Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul is excited to announce its 23rd annual collection of back-to-school supplies to help children prepare for a wonderful school year. If you would like to participate, please buy a school backpack, and fill it with back to school supplies. 

Please label the backpack either Grades K-3, Grades 4-5, Grades 6-8, or Grades 9-12. 

The backpacks should not be specific for either a boy or a girl. 

The backpacks may be dropped off in Sacred Heart Hall (lower level of the church) on the weekend of August 19/20 and on Monday, (August 21st) until noon. 

Members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society will deliver backpacks to families in town with school-aged children. We are also hoping to have enough backpacks to offer them to families living in area shelters. 

Last year, 132 children and teens benefited from your generosity. It is so important for children and youth to see the goodness in the world.

Suggestions for supplies may be found on our website.

Lists are also available at the front doors of the church.
