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 help our community by asking families to donate new or gently used shoes/sneakers and monetary donations for the purchase of needed shoes (such as work boots). The Brown Bag Ministry will collect and distribute these items locally to those most in need.
This year's St. Nick Shoe Drive will be held from Friday, December 6th through Friday, December 13th. Bins will be located in the school lobby and in the activity building (downstairs). Our monetary donation box will be the school office with Mrs. Stein (cash or checks made payable to Brown Bag Ministry). All donations are tax deductible. 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. We thank you in advance for making this service project a success.

Cafeteria Help Volunteer Link
Dates have been added to the signup through January. The holidays are always a difficult time to get volunteers, so please consider signing up to help.
The StMM school community is proud of our lunch program. Key to its success and maintenance is the two (2) volunteers who help serve each day. The day you volunteer, one of your children will receive their lunch at no charge.
Your time volunteering at lunch is fun and busy, and it passes quickly. In order to volunteer, we ask that you are a 'B' or 'C' level volunteer. For food safety, our volunteers wear their hair back and under a hat, or they can wear a diposable hair net provided by the cafeteria staff. Also, please wear closed toe shoes.
