As the new school year begins, many families are struggling.  Many parents are unable to provide the basic school supplies their children need to be effective.  St. Peter’s Church is reaching out to ensure that children start the school year with the tools they need to succeed!

You are invited to join the congregation in a Back-to-School Supply Drive.  The following basic items are being collected:

  • Wide-Ruled Notebook
  • 3-Ring Binders (1-1/2″)
  • Wide-Ruled Composition Book
  • No. 2 Yellow Pencils
  • Pink Erasers
  • 24 Ct. Crayola Crayons
  • Crayola Colored Pencils
  • Glue Sticks
  • Pencil Boxes/Pouches
  • Monetary Donations

Your participation will have a profound impact on students and their learning experience!  You are encouraged to invite your family, friends, work colleagues, neighbors, and others to help make the School Supply Drive a success.   

The School Supplies may be dropped off at St. Peter’s Church during normal working hours (Tuesday-Friday, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.) between now and September 1.  Please remember to wear masks while inside the building.  If you prefer to drive through, please call ahead (726-2175), and someone will be happy to come out and collect your items. 

Monetary donations will be used to purchase gift cards and calculators for High School students.  Gift cards to Walmart, Amazon, Staples, Best Buy, etc., are also welcome (suggested amount $25.00).  Please make checks payable to the church, and note they are for school supplies.

Thank you for joining in to support the students, teachers, and local schools in our area!
