School begins for thousands of young people on Thursday, Aug. 10 for Citrus, Hillsborough, and Pinellas counties. And Monday, Aug. 14 for Pasco and Hernando county public school students.
Many children of families we serve are still in need of school supplies. THANK YOU to the many who have donated already, including the generous parishioners of St. Paul Catholic Church on N. Dale Mabry Highway in Carrollwood (Tampa) who donated over 70 filled backpacks of school supplies last weekend through a drive run by the Knights of Columbus Council 11211.
