School Supply Drive
The Drive has been extended through July 23rd!!!
The parish Social Justice Committee (SJC) joins with St. Vincent de Paul’s longstanding service project and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital project launched last Fall to collect new backpacks and school supplies for Oakland children in need. SVdP will be collecting supplies for 200 children to be distributed at their Back to School for Your Kids program scheduled early August. The Primary Care Clinic of Children’s Hospital will be collecting school supplies for their large population of children seen throughout the year who live in neighborhoods impacted by poverty, gun violence, substandard housing, and other conditions that affect their health and well-being.
Supplies can be dropped off in the Church vestibule between June 27th and July 23rd.
Mark your calendars for our Parish community event scheduled for Saturday, July 17th (10:00a-2:00p) when we will assemble the backpacks.
If you have any questions, please contact Nina Green at 510/541-7188, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
