From the Desk of Mrs. Wolfe
Dear Our Lady Star of the Sea Families,
Did you know that our local St. Vincent de Paul Assistance Office provides food for over 600 children between the ages of 2-10 each day? We learned that last Wednesday at our Morning Assembly when Mrs. Agee came and spoke with us. So we are going to be "FILLING THE BUS" this week to stock the shelves of St. Vincent de Paul as one of our Catholic Schools Week Service Projects! Students are being asked to bring in non-perishable food items to donate in their classrooms, and our goal is to hypothetically Fill the Bus up with food! Each classroom has a container to fill, hopefully more than once, over the course of the week.
Another service project that we are working on next week is called "Pennies for Porridge and Pencils." We are collecting pennies (or any monetary donation) and NEW pencils to help students in our Sister Parish in Uganda. The money we collect will go to purchase porridge for students who might not otherwise get anything to eat during their school day, and the pencils, which are considered a luxury in Uganda, will be put directly to use by the students! Let's see how much help we can provide to our brothers and sister in Christ!
