What has 40 parts, is assembled by kids, is carried everywhere, and does a world of good? St. Peter’s annual backpack drive!
This year our kids out together 40 backpacks in total, all stuffed with school supplies for the students at Catholic Worker House.
Many thanks to everyone who donated, and thanks also to St. Peter’s Players. Proceeds from “Our Town” went to the backpack drive.
After all the backpacks were delivered we received this from Catholic Worker House…
Dear St. Peter’s community,
On behalf of a lot of elementary and high school students, I want to thank you so much for all of the backpacks and supplies… They are spectacular!!!! Black is the perfect color because it can be used by anyone. Terrific choice. We will distribute all of these very, very quickly.
Peace and gratitude,
Larry Purcell from the Catholic Worker House in Redwood City
