School supplies for homeless children

School supplies for homeless children

The Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless is already thinking about the upcoming school year and collecting school supplies for homeless children (K-12) in Massachusetts. Being homeless has a tremendous (negative) impact on educational outcomes but you can help a homeless child have a better start to the school year. PACC has generously supported this effort the last few years. If you would like to participate again this year, there will be a box in the narthex to drop off donated supplies on August 3, August 10, and August 17 between the hours of 9:30 and 11:30am. Contact the church office for more information at 781-643-8680.
