Once again St. Alphonsus Parish is participating in the Back-to-School Sharing Project that collects new backpacks and school supplies for needy children.

North Hills Community Outreach sponsors this project annually and provides hundreds of area students (pre-school through college) with new backpacks filled with school supplies.

You can place donations of new backpacks and school supplies in the boxes located at the back of both sides of the church through Aug. 6.

Special thanks go to Deb Petak for organizing the drive again this year.
