Dresden School Supply Drive

Our Mothers’ Club Dresden Partnership committee organizes an Annual School Supplies Collection Drive from Mid-February to Mid-March to help fill a great need at our neighborhood school. Since Dresden is a Title 1 school with mostly lower-income families, many students come to school with no school supplies at all. Needed items are often purchased by the teachers out of their own pockets. The generosity of our St. Pius families makes a tremendous impact on the students and teachers at Dresden.
