The organization seeks donations to prepare children for the upcoming school year

YOUNGSTOWN, August 2021:  As a new school year is quickly approaching, the children and young adults served by Beatitude House are in need of supplies. A collection is being taken, both online and in-person, for back-to-school supplies to ensure our children and young adults are prepared for the upcoming school year.

Having the right supplies gives our kids a great start to the year and their mom’s relief.

The students need traditional school supplies but also some specific items such as:  1 inch binders, plastic folders, book bags, spiral notebooks, notecards, book covers, pencil boxes, pens, colored pencils, highlighters, crayons, mechanical pencils, big block erasers, calculators, paper towels, sanitizing wipes, dry erase markers, etc.  Wide-rule, as well as loose leaf paper are also needed.

An Amazon registry has been created to help maintain social distancing, but items may also be dropped off at our administrative offices. The Amazon registry can be found on Beatitude House’s website and social media platforms.

Donations of gift cards for Target and Walmart are also greatly appreciated, as they can be used to purchase school clothing, shoes, socks and underwear.  Our students range in age from elementary through college and attend various schools.

If you are interested in donating, please bring items to the administrative offices located at 238 Tod Lane, Youngstown, OH 44504 (on the campus of St. Edward Parish). Donations are accepted from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm Monday through Friday. All items are needed by August 16th.
