As in previous years, Mayflower will be providing backpacks for all the students at Creekside Commons, preschoolers through college. Our greatest need is for filled backpacks, but we can also use lots of specific supplies.

If you wish to provide a backpack (or two or three!), please start with a sturdy pack, in a solid color or print, but no cartoon or movie characters please. Then fill it with the list of supplies provided:

  • 3 pocket folders
  • glue sticks
  • kid scissors
  • 3 spiral notebooks
  • 8 pack markers
  • erasers
  • 24 pack of crayons
  • 1-2 dozen #2 pencils

If you would like to do some bulk shopping instead of filling a backpack, please contact Jeanne Sumnicht to confirm what you wish to purchase so that we do not double up on items. Additional items needed: packs of colored pencils, loose-leaf notebook paper, composition notebooks, pencil pouches, BIC pens, accordion folders, pocket folders and erasers.

Thank you in advance for your support of our friends at Creekside Commons. All items should be dropped off at church by July 29. Contact Jeanne Sumnicht at or 612.845.0004.
