Once again, we collected new backpacks and school supplies for children whose families were unable to purchase these items themselves. On Sunday, August 18 we filled over 28 backpacks with binders, notebooks, folders, crayons, markers, pencils, earphones, calculators, flash drives, rulers, glue sticks, pencil boxes, pencils, erasers, and much more! The backpacks were then delivered to the Village at Cataumet. Additionally, we collected supplies (markers, glue, colored paper, lysol wipes, playdough, tape, duct tape and dry erase markers) for Theophany School, an Orthodox school in Needham, MA. Thank you to everyone who donated and helped with the packing and delivering!!!
Thank you card from the families at The Village at Cataumet Shelter:
For three mornings, twelve children, three babies, nine adults (Thank you, especially, to Natalie Leva, Erica Fernadez, and Kh. Alyssa’s mom!), and two teenagers gathered together for a time of fun, learning, and growing in our faith. Through games, crafts, stories, and discussions, we learned about the 12 Great Feasts, prayer, and being in church together. Additionally, care packages (each including a kid-made prayer box, a kid-made frame with icons of each of the 12 Great Feasts, and some summer fun items) were created and sent to two of our adopted seminarian families. Also, 20 “Blessings Bags” were made, assembled, and delivered to the Bourne Police Station. (Each “Blessings Bag” was made from an old t-shirt and filled with water & a snack, a coloring book & crayons, small toys, a toothbrush & toothpaste, a kid-made cross necklace, and other personal care items. Police officers will have these bags on-hand to give to children who are found to be in crisis situations.) Please see the posted pictures from these enriching three days!
Once again, we are collecting NEW backpacks and school supplies now through August 18 for children whose families are unable to purchase these items themselves. On Sunday, August 18 we will be filling the backpacks and delivering them to the Village at Cataumet. Additionally, we are collecting monetary donations to purchase supplies for Theophany School, an Orthodox school in Needham, MA. Thank you for your generosity in helping supply children with the tools they need to succeed in the upcoming school year!
