St. Mary’s School Supplies Collection

This year, St. Mary’s will provide a monetary donation to many of the
charitable programs we have assisted in the past with school supplies,
including, Bethany House Shelter for Women, Burke CARES, Fairfax County
Public Schools, Main Street Child Development Center, OAR Family
Services, PWC Juvenile Detention Center, Tenants & Workers United, and Safe Passage-Guatemala. St. Mary’s coordinates with FCPS Social Workers, who identify children in need.
There is a special collection envelope in the weekly Mass envelopes
package for those who would like to contribute. If you prefer to mail
a check, please write: “School Supplies Collection” on the memo line,
and mail this to: St. Mary of Sorrows Catholic Church, 5222 Sideburn
Road, Fairfax, VA  22032, Attn: Kathy Coleman, Parish Comptroller.
Families can use the monetary donations to help with additional costs
related to virtual learning, such as equipment and internet bills, as
well as to purchase school supplies. Thank you for your generosity
during this difficult time of the pandemic. May God Bless you and your
