Please join us as we provide assistance to our neighbors in need but supporting our 2019 Food Fight for St. Vincent de Paul. Each homeroom is challenged to fill reusable grocery bags with essential items. The bags will be given to the St. Vincent de Paul Bank Street location, and some items will go to support Sr. Therese Delgenio at Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen.
WHAT ARE WE COLLECTING? Each HR will be collecting the following items and filling reusable bags (you bring in). CLICK HERE for a printable list.
HR GOALS: Each HR will have a target number of bags to fill based upon the number of students in your HR. This will be announced the kickoff on Tuesday, April 2nd.
