Like to give back? Love Back to School shopping? You can do both and help our sister parish in Haiti!
The Haiti Committee will sponsor a Back to School drive for our brothers and sisters at St. Jean Baptiste the weekends of August 7 and 14. We are collecting school items such as new sneakers/shoes for school; notebooks (no wire binding, please); pens; pencils; pencil sharpeners; rulers; math learning cards; alphabet blocks; kindergarten learning aids; chalk; chalkboard erasers; children scissors; and art construction paper.
Also, with at least a one year expiration date when applicable, we are collecting children pain relievers; band aids and antibiotic/itch creams; first aid kits and gauze wraps/bandages/tape; antiseptic wipes and hand cleaner/antibacterial; as well as toothpaste, and toothbrushes.
We will also accept games including Dominoes, Chess, Uno, Etch-a-Sketch, Scrabble, Memory, Yahtzee, Lego’s, soccer balls, and jump ropes.
All returned items may be left in Room 103 (preferred) or in the Parent Alcove. Thank you for your generosity to our sister parish in Haiti.
