Support Back to School at Mildred Helms Elementary

Good Shepherd continues to pray for and bless the families and children of Mildred Helms in Largo

Our WELCA (Women of the ELCA) chapter is once again coordinating “Back to School” supplies for Mildred Helms Elementary IB World School.  We are collecting basic school supplies from now until Sunday, July 31, 2022.   School starts on Wednesday, August 10th and this will allow the time to distribute the supplies as needed.    A specific list from Mildred Helms is on the bulletin board at church with baskets for donations near the bulletin board.   Basic supplies include:

  • Zippered back packs (no roller backpacks, please)
  • Regular size bath towel for rest (no beach towels, plastic mats or pillows)
  • Variety of all sizes of baggies
  • Tissues
  • Paper Towels
  • Thick & thin markers
  • Colored Pencils
  • 16 count, 24-count Crayola crayons
  • Jumbo Crayola crayons
  • Hand sanitizer & soap
  • Dry erase markers
  • Lined index cards
  • Sticky notes
  • Glue sticks
  • Composition books
  • 4 Pocket Folders with prongs (red, blue, green & yellow)
  • 1 inch binder (clear cover & pockets)

  • Boys & Girl’s Underwear is always appreciated. Typical sizes would be for ages Kindergarten through 5th grade.

If you cannot bring items in person, you can order the items online and have them delivered to:
