Backpack & School Supplies Drive — July 10 - August 16, 2017

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.

With your support and the support of your family, colleagues, parishioners, and members of your organizations, we can reach our goal and ensure that all Enfield students are ready to succeed on the first day of school.

Last year, we provided the community with over 750 new backpacks filled with school supplies and provided them to kids in grades K-12. More information along with a list of grade level school supplies will be available soon on our website

In addition, starting the week of August 7th individuals and agencies have an opportunity to volunteer and assist with filling of the backpacks with grade level school supplies at the ERfC Administrative Office, 119 Post Road, Enfield, CT 06082.Volunteers can choose (1- 2) hour block of time between 9:00 am – 4:00 pm on any of the following dates:

  • Monday, August 7th

  • Wednesday, August 9th
  • Thursday, August 10th
  • Friday, August 11th
  • Monday, August 14th
  • Tuesday, August 15th
  • Wednesday, August 16th

 Where: ERfC Office Volunteer Backpack Assembly with a team of volunteers to fill backpacks with supplies at the ERfC Administrative Office 119B Post Road, Enfield CT

The collected school supplies and backpacks will be made available to families at the Backpack for Kids Day! event which will be held on Friday, August 18th (2:00 pm - 4:00 pm) at St. Patrick Parish Hall located at 64 Pearl St. in Enfield, CT.
