Thanksgiving is the season for giving, the season for giving out food boxes - for being of assistance to the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
The faculty and students of All Saints Catholic School donated food to St. Vincent de Paul for their Thanksgiving food box project. Food was also donated by parishioners of Our Lady of the Mountains Parish.
147 boxes were given out to 799 people during the hours of 9:00am-1:00pm
on Monday, November 19th.
In asking the students if they liked helping the St. Vincent de Paul Society by giving out the food they all said "Yes". They felt sorry for the people, were surprised at how many people there were and that some of them were young. One gentleman was a Vietnam Vet who was disabled now from the war.
Their next service project is serving the Thanksgiving dinner to parents, grandparents and students tomorrow. They are doing one of our school's SLEs (School Wide Learning Expectations) to be an active Christian who takes part in service projects.
