Thank-You for Donating to our Backpacks for Kids in Need!

2021 Backpack Drive


(2021 Backpack Drive. From L: George Mate, Jean Colantoni, & Fr. Zak)

YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE SCHOOL CHILDREN IS COMMENDABLE!  On behalf of Focus-North America, Jean Colantoni and George Matey would like to thank the organizations and members of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church for their contributions towards the Backpack Campaign for the 2022-2023 academic school year.  Your generous support of this drive will enable St. Nicholas to provide 48 backpacks, filled with school supplies, to the 2nd graders in the Duquesne City School District.  The administration and faculty of the Duquesne City School District have been very grateful for our support in the past.  This year, we will also donate $50 to each 2nd Grade homeroom teacher (2) for classroom supplies.  Thank you all again for your enthusiastic support of this drive.  You are giving the children the tools they need to succeed in school!
