School Supply Drive for Our Lady of Mercy’s Religious Education Program
Saint Clement's annual school supply drive for our sharing parish, Our Lady of Mercy, will take place on the weekends of August 18/19 and 25/26.
Our Lady of Mercy parish, located in Albany Park, has a very large and active Religious Education program, instructing and forming close to 600 children. Saint Clement parishioners have a tradition of generously supporting the program by providing school supplies to families who are experiencing financial hardship. The staff and families of OLM have always expressed heartfelt appreciation for our support.
What’s Needed? When shopping for your own supplies, or as you reflect on our call to care for those in need, please consider donating any of these items: white copy paper, colored copy paper, crayons (16 or 24 ct.), Ticonderoga beginners pencils (#2 lead), paper file folders, notebooks (70-page spiral or composition), glue sticks, disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, Kleenex, student scissors, binders (2-inch) and new backpacks.
Please drop off your donations in the boxes located at the back of the church and chapel. As always, thank you for the wonderful support you’ve shown in this annual supply drive!
