St. Benedict Community Hamper Advent Project

posted Nov 29, 2019, 12:28 PM by St. Benedict School

In support of this year's spiritual theme "Love Kindness and Mercy," St. Benedict has chosen to support 24 families in need within the Ottawa Catholic School Board. Each homeroom will support a family with a hamper of food, and some personal/hygiene items. 

Students will also be invited to participate in a "Christmas Spirit Day" on Friday December 6th by wearing Christmas colours, antlers, hats, and Christmas-themed clothing. We are asking for donations of $2-$5. Money raised will be used to buy each family a gift card which they can use to buy perishable food they may need or clothing. 

All donations of money, personal hygiene items, and non-perishable food items should be sent to school no later than Thursday, December 12th.

Thank you in advance for your support and generous giving.
