School Supply Collection

School Supply Collection
2023-2024 School Year

It’s already that time again – stores are stocking up on school supplies and our local schools are preparing for the next school year!

This year, we’ve received specific requests from Sterling area schools – to help us to fill their exact needs by purchasing/donating one or more of the following items. Help us give local students what they need to succeed!

Here’s how:

  1. Purchase requested items from our  wish list where they will be sent directly to St. Matt’s

  2. Purchase requested items at your chosen location and drop them off in the appropriate box(es) at the back of the church before/after Sunday services or during Tuesday/Thursday office hours (8 am - 4 pm).

  3. Make a financial gift online and in the memo note "Back to School Outreach 2023".



Here’s what our schools need:

  • 24-pack Crayola colored pencils - Goal 100

  • Acrylic paint sets - Goal 20

  • Box of 10 Crayola markers - Goal 220

  • Box of 24 Crayola crayons - Goal 220
