ST. JUDE HOUSE/ DIERSON CENTER
The St. Vincent de Paul Society has a Christmas Party for the residents of the St. Jude House and the Dierson Center. We ask each grade to collect items that will be put in a gift bag and given to the ladies.
This year we are asking the classes to bring in the following items:
Pre-School: Gloves, Socks, and/or Scarves
1st: Fuzzy Socks
2nd: Scarves (fashion or winter)
3rd: Popcorn and/or individual servings of Mac and Cheese, Rice, Soup, Pasta, etc...
4th: Packages/Bags of Hard Candy or Gum.
5th: small umbrellas, packages of note cards, individual size powder drink mixes for water, stamps
6th: soap (bar or body wash), shampoo/conditioner
7th: deodorant, toothbrushes/toothpaste
8th: scented body/hand lotion, Chapstick, hairspray
**this year we are not collecting hats, nail polish or candles.
All items need to be alcohol free. This applies mainly to the students collecting toiletries. Also, the toiletry items need to be the smaller sizes. The more we can fit in a bag, the better present they will receive.
DARE TO CARE (Nov. 5-20)Each year, the Student Service Council holds a collection drive to benefit Dare to Care Food Bank. Dare to Care relies on donations to feed the poor in the Louisville area, and this drive helps during the Thanksgiving holiday. God has truly blessed us at this school, and it is our privilege to pass along those blessings to those who are in need. Last year we collected 1,483 pounds of food. Our goal this year is to collect 1,500 pounds.
Most needed items:
peanut butter, beans, fruit juice, soup, rice, pasta, canned fruit, tuna, canned vegetables, cereal
*Please no glass containers
