Donations Needed for SVDP Backpack and School Supply Drive

Assumption is once again teaming up with the Saint Vincent dePaul Society to provide our neighbors in need with backpacks and school supplies for the 2023-2024 school year, and we need your help with donations through the end of July. 

Our 3rd Annual Christmas in July Backpack and School Supply Drive is similar to the Giving Tree, but it is held in July and school supplies are the items in need. Look for the Christmas Trees that are set up in the Narthex of Church during the month of July and grab a tag. The tags are color coded by grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12. Each tag will have a school supply item that is needed for a specific grade. We ask that you purchase and fill a backpack with the needed supplies and attach the tag to the backpack before returning your donation to Church the weekends of July 23 and July 30. 

If you have any questions, please contact Deborah Meyer at 636-293-2643 or email
