St. John’s customarily supports the Southeast Child and Family Agency in August for a Back to School Backpack Drive; however, due to COVID-19 and health regulations, the way we help looks a little different this year.

St. John’s will be collecting school supplies for Region 4 Elementary Schools. The region includes Essex, Chester, and Deep River. We ask our parish and our neighbors to visit the links provided below and donate whatever you can to us by Monday, August 24th.  

All supplies must be new, and we ask that supplies, please be dropped off in front of the church office entry on 3 Cross Street. The bin is located on the front step of the entrance. 

For any questions, please contact Kathleen Lowe, (860) 853-0212 or Pat Thompson at (860) 767-8203. 

Supplies: Grades K-2

Supplies: Grades 3-5
