Malachi’s Storehouse  is excited to announce that the time has come to collect backpacks with school supplies! Every year we collect and distribute several hundred backpacks to help our clients’ children get ready to go back to school. Every school-aged child, no matter their socio-economic level, should have the tools necessary to start school ahead of the game and Malachi’s has been supporting this effort for 10 years!
Our distribution date is Wednesday, July 26 during our regular food pantry hours of 11 am to 3 pm.
How Can You Help?
We rely on our Backpack Partners and friends of Malachi’s (that’s you!) to help us meet our wish for 400 filled backpacks by July 25.
1. Purchase these school supplies and a backpack.
2. Drop off supplies in the Collection Box in the Narthex of St. Patrick’s beginning this Sunday, July 9 through July 26.
3. Participate in the super fun event called
Backpack in the Park on July 22, where folks come from all over the city to party and pack backpacks! Many of these backpacks are given to Malachi’s for our kids! Check out the information here. Several of our Malachi’s volunteers attend every year – so ask us about joining in the fun! This event is hosted by our largest backpack partner,
For the Kid. 
4. Donate  here – we always appreciate the money!
