FOCUS Backpack Drive - 07/22/19

St. George agreed to participate in the FOCUS Backpack Drive as part of our on-going charity support. 

The Parish Council approved St. George to fill 24 backpacks, which are targeted to help Middle School students at Roosevelt Middle School in Bridgeport.   We will be delivered 24 backpacks to fill. 
 
Note from Karen – status as of Wednesday, July 24th   
 
We have offered to fill 24 backpacks with needed school supplies for Focus. 
 
In an effort to expedite this, and to be equitable, I have purchased all but a few items on the list. 
 
If you could donate funds, we will be able to offset the cost of filling the bags.  
 
Any amount would be appreciated as each fulfillment of the backpacks runs about 30.00 each. 
 
Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or are willing to buy 24 of these items which are remaining.
 
24 pencil cases (soft/cloth cases) - DONATED/COMPLETE
24 binder page dividers (8 tab package) - DONATED/COMPLETE
24 page protector packages (25 protectors per package)
3 sets of 24 binders -  1 set was DONATED/ 2 sets remain to be purchased
24 black pen packages (3 or 4 pack)  -  DONATED/COMPLETE
 
Thank you all,
 
Karen
