It’s hard to believe that summer is upon us and then school will be starting in August! This is the time of year we begin collecting supplies for our annual backpack distribution for Malachi’s children.

We need your help with our efforts to collect supplies. There are 3 ways you can help:

Engage your friends and neighbors and organize a drive to collect these items for us.
You can shop for the items yourself. See list below of backpacks and supplies needed. Simply bring your purchased items to the Malachi’s Storeroom at St. Patrick’s. To make arrangements for drop off, please email Kathy Malcolm-Hall.
Or you can donate money to Malachi’s so that we can purchase the school supplies and backpacks needed.
