photo (7)For the 5th year now, the generous members of our worshipping community here at St. Anthony Shrine & Ministry Center have made it possible for us to distribute new, fully-stocked backpacks for 200+ school children whose families are members of our Franciscan Food Center.  These children, who will be entering Kindergarten through 5th grade next week, will be able to start the school year off with brand new school supplies and a brightly colored, good quality backpack.  Thank you to everyone who donated to the Kids Program!!  If you would like to know more about this ministry, or you have questions about how you can help or make a donation, please contact Julie Ogden, Kids Program Director at: [email protected]
