Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive
Next week is our Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive benefiting Queen Anne Food Bank!
Please bring in non-perishable food and hygiene items on Monday and Tuesday. Look for the Cornucopia in the lunchroom. Help fill our lunchroom, so we can help fill the tables of others.
The following are items of particular need:
Jelly and mayonnaise
Granola/trail mix/power bars
Operation Gratitude – Send your candy to a hero!
Wondering what to do with all your excess Halloween Candy? Bring it to school!
St. Al’s is once again participating in Operation Gratitude where we collect your leftover Halloween candy and donate it to our troops serving overseas. We are accepting candy, dental floss and pens or mechanical pencils this year. Please do not purchase candy on sale after Halloween; only donate your extra/leftover candy. If you would prefer to make a financial donation to help with shipping, please drop it in the office. Any excess money will be donated directly to Operation Gratitude.
Look for the box in The Commons from November 1 through November 5.
Questions? Contact Lori Wilbur.
Second grade has chosen to collect socks for the homeless as our service project for the month of October. Please help them by having your student bring in new socks for men and women. There is a drop off box by the front office or you can send them in with your student. Mrs. Cintron will deliver the socks to Queen Anne Food Bank at the end of the month. Thank you!
One Saturday at St. Charles Food Bank
St Alphonsus School Community served in Burlington, WA at the St. Charles Food Bank. The baby items were a hit, especially the diapers. Mrs. Johnson’s 5/6 girls made a large box of hand-knit items and they flew off the table. Lots of smiles and grace were shared by all. God bless everyone who helped by donating, knitting, serving and praying for us and our neighbors.
