Lenten Service Project

Jared Boxes to support Children's Hospital

TIME: 4:00pm
DATE: 4/03/19

St. Phil's Service Club is collecting items for Jared Boxes!

During Lent, St. Philomena School is undertaking a special service project to help our community. The Service Club is sponsoring a Jared Box Collection that will benefit youth in our area of all ages. With the help and support of our St. Phil's community, the Service Club will collect and assemble items, and then deliver as many Jared Boxes to Seattle Children's Hospital as possible. With your generosity, we delivered 81 Jared Boxes last year! Thank you for your amazing support! Our goal is to meet or exceed what we did last year. For more information on Jared Boxes, please refer to the following link and check out the video:
