Jr. Service Ministry would like to thank All who gave of their time and talent to help Project Linus help brighten the day of local, young children in need on Wednesday, May 31st!

 

9 students helped serve others by making fleece blankets to provide security, warmth and love.  Blankets will be distributed by the RI Chapter to children in crisis and in need of a “blanket hug”, as is said at Project Linus.  (Blankets were dropped off at the local collection location at Knit One Pearl Too in Barrington)

 

More information about Project Linus can be found on their local website, www.projectlinus.org/volunteer/?StateKey=RI or on their national website, www.projectlinus.org/. 

 

To All, your gift of time and talent to make the blankets and cards to put a smile on the face of another is much appreciated!!


SANDWICH CLUB
          
 
 

Thank you to all the students and parents who volunteered at the last sandwich club of the school year. A little over 200 sandwiches with an apple, crackers and chips were made for our neighbors in need without shelter & were distributed by Loaves & Fishes the following weekend in the Providence area.  

 

Thank you to all who gave of their time to meet the needs of others, using your hands & hearts!! And a big thanks to Fr. Bob for always taking the time to speak with the Sandwich Club about service and provide a blessing over the sandwiches, for those who will receive them & also for all in attendance!

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION:  Don't forget to keep on clipping this summer!  

 
Thank you for sending in your box tops this year.  Because of your diligence, SLS was able to raise just over $1,000!!!   For those that don't know, Box Tops can be found on various supermarket products and can be cut out and sent into school.  This is an easy way to generate money for our school!  SLS receives 5 cents for every box top submitted and are submitted for reimbursement twice per year - once in the Fall and once in the Spring. 
 
Please keep on clipping this summer so that we can reach our goal next year too!
