Please Note:

There is a correction in the amount of food that needs to be collected.  We need a total of 1000 pounds of food.  ( Sorry for the missing 0.) The school goal will be 500 pounds and the Knights will try to match that.  Last year the school raised about 1200 pound of food by themselves.  I think we may be able to do it again!


As Lent begins we should reflect on the three ways we offer our gifts to God.  First there is prayer.  God enjoys a conversation with us.   Second is fasting.  The children can think about ways they can fast from candy, from talking in class, from being selfish, or from many other favorites or behaviors.  The third gift we can give to God is almsgiving.  Giving alms can be with money or other needed items.  We will concentrate on feeding the hungry.  We will collect nonperishable food items to be given to Genesis.

 Again the Knights of Columbus will partner with the school to raise 1000 pounds of food to donate to the hungry.  If 1000 pounds is raised the Knights will receive $100 from their Supreme Council.  This will also be donated to Genesis.

The grocery cart will be put in the foyer at school and nonperishable food can be brought in anytime.  Several times during Lent we will weigh our food items and keep track of the amount of food donated.   We would appreciate all the donations that will feed the hungry and help us practice unselfish traits that create in us good and unselfish habits.  God bless our experience of generosity.  All food must be brought to school before Eastervacation (March 29).
