Back-to-School Book Bag Program

St. Paul's commits to sending 25 backpacks stuffed for kindergartners to the CornerStone.  

  • 12 ‐ # 2 Pencils
  • 24 ‐ Crayons
  • 2 ‐ Glue Sticks
  • 1 ‐ Box of Tissues
  • 2 ‐ Pink Erasers
  • 8 ‐ Broad Tip Markers
  • 1 ‐ Pair of Fiskars blunt nosed scissors
  • 1 ‐ Pencil Case or Box
  • 1 ‐ Wide‐Ruled Spiral Bound Notebook
  • 3 ‐ Plastic Two‐Pocket Folders (without prongs)

Additionally, we have purchased larger packs for King & Queen Community Ministries, Essex County Schools, and for the CornerStone that we usually donate unstuffed.  If you want to stuff one of those for an older student, please ask Lucy Baker, 769-3450, for a pack (we have 17 and 19 inch ones in "boy" or "girl" colors), look on-line at the county and grade list to find out what is needed, buy the listed items, stuff and LABEL the pack with the county and grade-level for which the pack is designated.

Thank you for all your support with this mission! God Bless.
