READY DAY ONE
PICK - PACK - PRAY
Since 2012, St. Mary of the Visitation partners each year with our parish elementary schools and Family and Children's Services of Waterloo Region to reach over 100 young people yearly so they will be Ready Day One for Back to School!
Next time you are shopping, pick up a backpack, pack it with school supplies and bring the backpack to the Parish Centre on the weekends of August 19/20 and August 26/27, 2017.
In 2015 we collected 140 back packs for Ready Day One and since our inception have collected just under 400 back packs
Needed items include, but are not limited to:
Backpacks, Pencils, Pens, Crayons, Markers, Colored pencils, Tape, Loose-leaf paper, Scissors, Folders, Glue, wipes, Kleenex, Paper Towels, Hand Sanitizer.
Each backpack will then receive a special note and prayer from our parish community in an effort to reach those families who are unable to send their child to school, Ready Day One, for a successful school year!
Pick a Backpack. Pack a Backpack. Pray for a Child.
