Collection Day is August 6 & 7 following all Masses.
Many children from low-income families will have to do without needed school supplies. In August, we are helping by collecting new backpacks and supplies for these kids to start the school year right. Donations will go to Catholic Charities (Ventura, Moorpark and Oxnard), MICOP, Lutheran Services, and RAIN to help children in low-income and/or homeless families.
School supplies needed are: backpacks, spiral notebooks, binders, notebook paper, pencils, pens, markers, crayons, rulers, glue/glue sticks, pencil boxes
How can I help? Volunteers needed to collect donated items and give receipts at all doors before and after any mass, to move items to the Parish Hall during any mass, and to sort the items into categories. On the following Tuesday from 6-9pm items are divided and assigned to recipient organizations for pick up the following day. Delivery might be needed.
*Community Service Hours are available
