School Tools drive begins

School Tools, Interfaith Action’s annual collection of school supplies for students in need, is starting now. With prices on the rise this fall, the tools necessary for school success will be even less affordable for students from low-income families.

These are the supplies needed:

  • Backpacks
  • 3-ring binders, loose-leaf paper and folders
  • Calculators
  • Spiral and composition notebooks
  • Pencils, pens, markers, colored pencils, crayons, erasers, highlighters, pencil sharpeners
  • Glue sticks and bottles
  • Scissors and rulers
  • Facial tissue
  • School boxes
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Reusable masks

Bring your donations to church by Sunday, Aug. 14. Delivery date is Tuesday, Aug. 16, at St. Paul’s UCC, 900 Summit Ave. (new location!), from 10 a.m. to noon and 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
