The ERfC Summer Lunch Bunch team are inviting you to help support the 

Backpack for Kids Day! — Friday, August 18, 2017 

Join us from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm at St. Patrick’s Parish Hall, 64 Pearl Street, Enfield, CT 06082

For many Enfield families, purchasing school supplies for their children is an overwhelming financial challenge because the costs of necessary items are beyond their means. 

We invite you to participate in the 2017 Backpack & School Supplies Drive, a collaborative community effort to make school supplies available to Enfield children. Last year, we distributed over 750 backpacks to children before the start of school. Our goal this year is to collect and fill 850 backpacks. With your help and the support of your colleagues, departments, organizations etc. we can reach our goal and ensure that all Enfield students are ready to succeed on the first day of school.


A list of suggested supplies is included. If you don’t like to shop or don’t have time - we will do the shopping for you! 

Visit our website at and follow the Summer Lunch Bunch link to the 2017 Backpack & School Supplies Drive for donation information.

Please add Friday, August 18, 2017 date to your calendar.

If you are available, we need as many volunteers as possible to assist with the distribution of backpacks. We are confident that as a caring community and in a collaborative effort, we will provide support to our families and give Enfield kids a great start of school in September.

For further information and to volunteer, please call or email ERfC Manager of Community Engagement & Partnerships, Ryan Obedzinski at 860-253-9935 or email

Thank you for your support!
