Join Rev. Catie and Mark for a “blessing of the backpacks” for the start of the school year. Bring your backpacks to receive a blessing from First Parish! We are also collecting “first day of school” outfits to donate to Cradles to Crayons, a local organization that gives young children access to essential items at school, home, and play. The organization accepts new and gently used children’s clothing sizes newborn-youth 18/20 (plus adult sizes small and medium, if child appropriate) and shoes sizes newborn-adult 10. Please see their “most needed items” list for more information. Your donation will support Cradles to Crayons efforts to provide children living in homeless or low-income situations with the essentials they need to thrive.
