School Supply Collection

We are pleased to participate once again in the Father Beiting’s Appalachian Mission to get school backpacks ready for the upcoming school year.  With so many school supplies sales going on, we wanted to give you the listing of donations needed in case you wanted to take advantage of these great sales.  Please match the first letter of your last name to the wish list.  We will be collecting the items for two weekends – August 20 & 21, and 27 & 28, and will be packing them on Tuesday, August 30th.  Collection boxes will be at the entrances to the Church.  Thank you!

Financial donations to help defray the shipping costs are also greatly appreciated.  Checks may be made payable to Holy Name Parish (in the lower corner please note:  Father Beiting’s Appalachian Mission).  Place donations in the collection basket in an envelope marked school supplies or mail to the Rectory.


Volunteers will gather in the altar server room on Tuesday evening, August 30th, immediately following the St. Jude Novena Mass, to assemble the boxes.  If you can help, please come by!  All are welcome!  This is sponsored by the Community Service Commission of Holy Name Parish.
