Annual Backpack Ministry

July 29, 2016, 12:26 pm @ | View Map

Every year St. Andrew’s parishioners generously bring in donations of backpacks and Backpack 3school supplies for families who struggle to make ends meet. This year, thanks to a parishioners’ generous donation of 32 backpacks, we’ll hand out the backpacks to you and ask that you fill the backpack with the necessary school supplies, as listed below.  These filled backpacks will then be donated to the local Valparaiso schools, and this drive will run through August 9th.  Thank you for serving God by serving others.
Below is the list of necessary supplies:
1    Backpack
1    Cloth or plastic pencil pouch
1    Box 16 primary color crayons
2    Pink erasers
2    Biggie Ticonderoga pencils
1     Pack primary markers
1     Glue stick
1     Highlighter
2    2-pocket folders
1    Pack elementary-ruled loose leaf paper
1    Box kleenex
