Parents: as you shop for school supplies, please consider picking up an extra gender-neutral backpack for a young child in need. St. Mary’s has been asked to supply 50 new backpacks for elementary students at Hyannis West. School supplies are being donated by others, but we’re also looking for help stuffing backpacks with supplies the morning of Aug. 29 (exact place and time coming soon). Backpacks will be collected in Cathy Ode’s office. Thanks in advance!
