School Supply Drive for Arnie’s Cupboard (July & August)

SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE (JULY & AUGUST)

The people of St. Peter’s always respond to the needs of those in our community who need our help! Our parish has such a generous and caring spirit.

ARNIE’S CUPBOARD is the Food Pantry at UMASS DARTMOUTH where I serve as chaplain. The mission of Arnie’s Cupboard is to eradicate hunger in the UMass Dartmouth community.

Arnie’s Cupboard, located right on campus, is fully stocked with nutritious food items and serves students, faculty, and staff, and their households.

Because of the pandemic, many students are in great need because their families are struggling and WE can help!  There are many college students who struggle to purchase basic school supplies. During the months of July and August, we are going to be collecting school supplies for students in need.

Please bring whatever you would like to donate to church on Sundays at 10:00AM and leave them in the receptacles (starting this Sunday.)

You can also schedule a time to drop items off at our Parish Office but please be sure to call or email first to be sure someone will be around: stpetersdartmouth@gmail.com

We will also have some scheduled drop-off times during the summer and will announce those times soon on our website and Facebook page. We hope that you will be able to help and we are most grateful for whatever you are able to do.

Here is a list of items we need:

PENS
MECHANICAL PENCILS
SHARPIES (ALL COLORS)
NOTEBOOKS
BINDERS
NOTEBOOK FILLER PAPER (COLLEGE RULED)
BACKPACKS
PLANNERS/CALENDARS
STICKY NOTES
CALCULATORS
STAPLERS
FLASH DRIVES

Thank you for your generous support and assistance!

Peace,

(Rev.) Scott A. Ciosek
