THANKSGIVING STEWARDSHIP PROJECT
Students in grades K - 8th grade are asked to bring an assigned food item and $1.00 (suggested amount) to purchase a turkey or chicken to fill a Thanksgiving basket. These food baskets are distributed by the St. George Chapter of the St. Vincent de Paul Society to needy families residing in St. George Parish. Each year, we are able to provide a basket for about 35 - 40 families.
PreK students are asked to help replenish the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry by donating the following food items:
PreK 1- peanut butter
PreK 2 - jelly
PreK 3 - canned meat
PreK 4- ravioli
PreK 5 - soup
PreK 6 - mac and cheese
Through this service project we have an excellent opportunity to teach and reinforce the spirit of generosity. Parents may wish to consider the following:
Have your child work at some "little job" around the house to earn the cost of the contribution.
Encourage your child to give from his/her savings.
Please return monetary and food donations by Wednesday, November 20th.
Thank you for your generosity and support.
