Updated: Sep 2

Thinking about school already? No just backpacks.


Back by popular demand, St. Clement's is holding its backpack and school supplies drive on Sunday, September 11, 2022. This will coincide with Blessings of the Backpacks Sunday.


We will be collecting backpacks and school supplies for elementary and high school students in the

Flemingdon Park Ministry area as well as school supplies and lunch containers for the children at Flemington Park Public School.


The most needed items include:

For Flemingdon Park Ministry high school students:

  • heavy-duty durable 3 pocket backpacks

  • math sets

  • scientific calculators

  • red, blue, black pens

  • high-liters

  • markers

  • 2" ring binders

  • 3-hole lined paper.

For Flemington Park Public School:

  • Crayola crayons that come in skin tones (fat or thin crayons)

any craft supplies such as

  • construction paper

  • popsicle sticks

  • lunch containers

  • markers

  • pencil crayons

  • glue

  • any items that could be used in the classroom for children in a kindergarten to Grade 5 school

Flemington Park School also has a nutrition program. Financial donations to the nutrition program or for the purchase of school supplies are also warmly welcomed. Mark your donation to St. Clement's Church, Outreach Committee - backpack and/or nutrition program. You will be able to receive an income tax receipt for your donation.


Financial donations can be submitted at any time.


Can't attend on Sunday, September 11? An alternative drop-off date is Monday, September 12 from 5-6:30pm in the parking lot of St. Clement’s Church.
