Lenten Service project
Benefitting Children's Hospital
With the support of Dr. M., the Service Club is taking on a Lenten Service project that will benefit sick youth in our community of all ages. With the help of our St. Philomena community, our plan is to assemble and deliver as many Jared Boxes to Seattle
Children's Hospital as possible. Last year we delivered 18 complete Jared Boxes; this year our goal is at least 30. Please see the following link for more details: http://www.thejaredbox.com/pages/index.html.
Following are suggested items for each class/age group; however, students from all grades are welcome to bring any new, small toys for the boxes. Students may wish to purchase items from the student store to include in the boxes. We will be collecting items beginning Monday, March 6th through Friday, March 31st.
