It has become a tradition that during the month of November, our community service outreach supports families in St. Patrick’s Parish on 400 South 1000 West. Each grade level will be asked to collect different Thanksgiving dinner food items during the month. In addition, the Student Council will sponsor money raising activities for the purchase of grocery store gift cards. On November 18, “School Families” will assemble the different food items in boxes. These boxes along with a gift card for a frozen/fresh turkey will be given to over 45 families in St. Patrick’s Parish. Some families in St. Ambrose Parish are served as well.
The Student Council service project for December 2016 is two-fold. One, to continue our support of St. Patrick’s parish. Many young children and elderly men and women (who are often forgotten this time of year) are in great need of warm clothing and other necessities. You are asked to donate new or slightly used (clean) warm-ups/sweat suits in all sizes, (small to XL for adults), gloves, hats, sweaters, socks, coats, snow pants, boots, long sleeve shirts, and other warm clothing. Smaller size new containers of hygiene essentials are greatly needed, such as shampoo, soap, toothpaste, lotion, shaving cream, wipes, deodorant etc. Second, The Road Home, a social service agency that assists individuals and families who are homeless in Salt Lake City is in great need of new or slightly used, clean blankets. Please place all items in front of the office.
