Backpack Buddies


This summer, we will be assisting the Goochland "Y" with their annual Bright Beginnings Program. Children who have the necessities they need to succeed can focus on learning rather than worrying about having shoes to wear on the playground and crayons to color their assignments. Through this Bright Beginnings program, children will have the essentials needed for a confident first day of school!

You can help by becoming a Backpack Buddy. A Sign Up Genius form has been created for St. Mary's parishioners. CLICK HERE to go to the form.

Follow these simple instructions: Sign up for a student category. Read items listed; buy and fill backpack; turn in a backpack at St. Mary's no later than July 10th. (Please write your name on an index card, and attach it to your backpack when you return it.)

Thank you for your generosity in supporting all of our Human Concerns ministries.
