12 Apr The 2019 Saint Vincent de Paul and STC Foodbank Collection
Today marks the end of our three week Lenten campaign to collect food for our local foodbank, the OLV Saint Vincent de Paul branch.
The campaign was led by Omar Ali, Yr 13 Service Captain and Brother John O’Neill.
(and 12JUS class helped with the man power!)
Every day students gathered money and food donations.
The House totals were amazing:
Marlow: 922 items
Joyce: 843 items
McLintock: 826 items
Rice: 377 items
We help SVdP because we want to live the salvific Gospel message, “I was hungry and you gave me something to eat” (Matt 25:35)In 14 days we gathered 2968 items of food.
Huge thanks to those involved.
Next year let’s break 3000s!!!
