Please help us provide new backpacks filled with school supplies to over 300 children served by Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan. Let us help our families start the 2021 school year off right!  Download or print a supply list here.

There are multiple ways you can help.

  1. Consider purchasing an item from this custom-curated Amazon Wishlist and have your donation securely shipped to our Pontiac location where the backpacks will be assembled on August 19. *Please leave a note or message with your Amazon Wishlist order so that we can share your message with the children and families that receive these supplies.
  2. Download or print a list of requested supplies here and purchase at a retailer of your choice and drop off your donations at any Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan location (hours and times vary by location) click here for a list of locations.
  3. Conduct a mini drive at your parish or workplace and we will come and pick up your supplies and donations!
We will need to collect all of the supplies by the week of August 9, so that volunteers can assemble and bundle the supplies on August 18. Sign up here if you want to help us pack supplies on Wednesday, August 18! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Isabella Agby at or at 586-416-2300 ext. 3653.
