Each year, we participate in the School Tools drive of Interfaith Action of Greater St. Paul. We collect backpacks, calculators and other school essentials for students in need.
Our donations go to children from low-income and homeless families from 10 different East Metro programs. One of these partners is the St. Paul Public Schools Title I Program for Homeless Children and Families. It serves nearly 2,000 homeless students each year.
Please bring new school supplies to church by Sunday, Aug. 19.
- High priority supplies: Backpacks, three-ring binders, calculators, facial tissue
- Other necessary supplies: Spiral notebooks, composition notebooks, pencils, pens, markers, folders, school boxes, erasers, highlighters, pencil sharpeners, colored pencils, rulers, glue sticks and bottles, loose-leaf paper, scissors, crayons, USB flash drives
- Monetary donations allow the agencies to purchase needed supplies not collected at the drive. Make checks payable to Interfaith Action with “School Tools” in the memo line, and put them in the collection plate.
