St. Nick Shoe Drive
In the spirit of the season of giving, we are asking for help from our St. Mary Magdalene School and our parish community. Second grade's annual service project is held every December. In honor of Saint Nicholas who helped the needy, we will be helping our community by asking families to donate new/gently used shoes/sneakers or provide monetary donations for the purchase of needed shoes (such as work boots). The Brown Bag Ministry will distribute these shoes to those most in need.
This year's St. Nick Shoe Drive will be held from Friday, December 5th through Friday, December 12th. Bins will be located in the school lobby and in the activity building (downstairs). When donating shoes with laces, please tie them together before bringing them to school. For shoes without laces, please place them in a plastic bag.
Our monetary donation box will be in the school office with Mrs. Stein (cash or checks made payable to Brown Bag Ministry). All donations are tax deductible.
We thank you in advance for making this service project a success.
