When kids are preparing to go back to school, we want every child to start off the school year with adequate school supplies, a sturdy backpack and a new pair of athletic shoes! In the past, we served up to 250 children of all grade levels from the Mahtomedi and North St. Paul / Maplewood / Oakdale school districts.

You can be part of this!

Donate Backpacks & Athletic Shoes – by Sunday, August 14, 2022

We are able to purchase school supply items at a great price through a wholesaler, so we will gratefully accept monetary donations, or donations of backpacks and athletic shoes. Take a tag off the giving trees in the Sanctuary or Great Hall through August 7, and place the items under the wish trees by Sunday, August 14.

Volunteer at School Supply Distribution

Our school supply distribution serving kids from Mahtomedi and the North St. Paul / Maplewood / Oakdale school districts happens Aug. 15-17.

  • Volunteer to help set up the school supply “store” on Monday, Aug. 15
  • Volunteer to “shop” with our students as they pick out their supplies. We ask for adults only for the sake of confidentiality of the youth being served. Distribution will be Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 16 & 17
