It’s that time of year again when the summer comes to an end and many K-12 students are anticipating the first day of the 2022-23 school year. Traditionally, Catholic Charities has hosted a Back to School Supply Drive to support families in need with items to help their school-age children start the school year off right. You can partner with us to ensure the youth we serve through our programs like Children’s Health Home are equipped to thrive.
With nearly 50% of children living in poverty in the city of Syracuse, basic necessities can often be a challenge to provide. Join us in this effort to gift students with new supplies that can serve as a reminder of how much they are supported and encouraged to do their very best.
- Index Cards
- Loose Leaf Paper
- Pencil Sharpeners

Donated school supplies can be brought to the House of Providence (1654 West Onondaga St., Syracuse, NY 13204) until Friday, Sept. 30. Items can be dropped off at the reception area on the first floor. The main entrance is in the back of the building. All items will be distributed to children whose families are participating in one or more Catholic Charities programs. For questions about the school supply drive, contact 315-362-7527.
