Service Galore

Over the next couple of months, we are going to be kicking our service initiatives into mega high gear.  Here is just a taste:

1. Thanksgiving Basket Drive: November 21
2. Canned Food Drive at Turkey Bowl: November 24
3. 25 Days of Service: Advent
4. Book Drive for Henry Wilson School: December 13
5. Canned Food Drive Competition against Bishop Guertin: late January

By far, the biggest of these is our annual Thanksgiving Basket Drive.  My goal is for us to raise 400-500 baskets which will benefit the food pantries of Blessed Sacrament and Transfiguration Parishes.  I will be giving laundry baskets to all the students on Monday and ask that they fill them up with the following:

  • 2 cans of turkey gravy
  • 5 pound bag of potatoes
  • 2 bags of fresh carrots
  • 1 package of dinner rolls
  • 1 box of stuffing mix
  • 2 cans of cranberry sauce
  • 2 cans of green beans
  • 1 can of coffee
  • 2 cans of fruit cocktail
  • Assorted desserts
  • Anything else you may want to add
400-500 baskets is very ambitious but the need is greater than ever.  See how here.
