Drop-off begins August 5!

St. Philip’s is teaming up with Tricounty Family Ministries for a backpack and school supply drive! You can drop off your items at the church office beginning August 5, or you may bring them to church on August 11. South Carolina’s tax holiday is August 2-4. We especially hope that parishioners shopping for their own children's school supplies this summer might also pick up a few items for less fortunate children.

Tricounty Family Ministries, which is one of our home missions, will collect the supplies and allow underprivileged children to choose a backpack and then 6-8 grade-appropriate items to go in the backpack. Any item or items you wish to donate will be most appreciated!

Please note that this is the same date as our annual "Blessing of the Backpacks," when students and teachers may bring their own backpacks in for a blessing. Our priests will also bless the donated backpacks at that time.
