Back to School


Imagine having to choose between diapers and back to school supplies – one child’s needs or another. This is the reality for some families in our community. Back to school supplies just aren’t a part of the monthly budget.

Catholic Charities Emergency Services strives to help families who are struggling to make the monthly budget work. During the month of August, we do that by providing students from low-income families with a backpack filled with basic school supplies, along with a few pairs of socks and underwear to start the school year.

You can help by dropping off a donation of a backpack, school supplies, socks or underwear to Catholic Charities Emergency Services at:

157 Roosevelt Road, Suite 100
St. Cloud MN 56301

crayonsWe especially need backpacks, erasers, 8-packs of thick markers, socks and underwear for junior high students, spiral bound notebooks and filler paper.

You can help make sure every child in our community is prepared to go back to school – prepared for success!
