Back to School Supply Drive

It’s that time of year again and our back-to-school supply drive is organized to provide basic school supplies for the kids of Oasis, A Haven for Women and Children in Paterson.

Similar to what we did for our Christmas collection, we have set up a gift registry at where you can see a list of over 6,000 items including general school supplies, backpacks, and new this year we also have school uniform items including polos, pants, and sneakers for you to select from in a variety of prices. The easiest & most direct way is by entering the link directly at:

You can also access the gift registry by using the following steps:
*Go to
*Click on the Registry button.
*Under “search for Organization” enter OASIS A Haven for Women and Children *This will bring you to the Oasis gift registry with over 6000 items.

Once you select your gift and put it in the cart, you will see that the registry is set up to send all items directly to Oasis at 59 Mill St. Paterson so be sure not to change that feature when checking out. The gift registry link will also be made available very soon at the church website too.

If you prefer to provide financial support rather than purchase a gift, you may do so by going to the church website and clicking on the tab labeled DONATE in the top right corner and from there you will see another drop down which will show you the OASIS Back to School Supply project. You can also send in a check to the church office and checks should be made payable to First Pres Caldwell and be sure to put in the memo section Oasis School Supplies. All monetary donations must be received no later than Aug 14 to allow us to shop on your behalf. Last day to order from the Registry will be Monday August 16 to provide enough time to process & ship your gifts to Oasis. Please do not bring any gifts to the church office as there will be no delivery offered due to Covid-19.

Thank you for your continued support & generosity of the Oasis Back to School Supply Drive! Please feel free to contact Ellen Johnson at johnsonellend@gmail or phone 973-229-2453 if you have questions or need assistance.
