The OLA Outreach Council is sponsoring a parish drive for school supplies for the neediest students in our community. The big collection date is Sunday, Aug. 1 in the auditorium after morning Masses.
Beneficiaries will be families in need at Hope Partners, Uncommon Good, and OLA School, numbering in the hundreds. You may contact these groups for details about more expensive items such as calculators.
The list of items is no surprise, and the opportunities for getting a good deal at local stores are many! Have fun shopping in the knowledge that a student will be well-prepared for school and study with your help.
