Back to School Backpack Program for PRISM (through August 10th)

BACK TO SCHOOL BACKPACK PROGRAM – In conjunction with the Robbinsdale School District, PRISM has decided to proceed with this program even though at this writing a decision has not yet been announced regarding what returning to school will look like. Regardless, kids need supplies. Along with 7 other congregations, Holy Nativity has agreed to be a secured drop-off location for this year’s drive.

From NOW until August 10th supplies and good quality backpacks can be dropped off in the narthex. Supplies needed include notebooks, loose leaf paper, folders, flash drives, calculators, highlighters, markers, Clorox wipes, Kleenex, and Facemasks. You can purchase from the comfort of your own home by using Linktr.ee/prismmpls which will take you directly to both Amazon and Target online wish lists. This is a very easy way to order needed items and help kids get a good start back to learning. Ship your order to Holy Nativity and it will get included in the drop-off donations. The week of August 10-14th, we will ask for volunteers willing to come in for 2-hour shifts to fill the backpacks, which will then be delivered to PRISM on August 14th.  Please contact the office or Pat Harwell if you would be willing to help. The distribution this year will be on Friday, August 21st and 28th via a drive- up model similar to the food distribution. If you or someone you know needs school supplies at no cost, call 763-529-1350.
