For more than a decade St. Paul has been packing Thanksgiving dinner boxes for families at Sunny Hill Elementary School and last year, Paddock Elementary School. Thank you St. Paul for your unending generosity. Last year we donated a total of 119 boxes.
Due to the unprecedented economic strain being experienced at this time, we are anticipating the need for more boxes this year—so we’d like to begin collecting earlier to create boxes. Beginning Sunday, October 11, you can sponsor a portion or an entire box by donating the money for the items (approximately $65, which includes a $25 Jewel gift card for a turkey) at our website at www.stpauluccbarrington.org. All monetary donations are needed by November 8th to allow adequate time to order and accept delivery of the food items.
Or, you can purchase the needed items and deliver them to St. Paul from November 1st—15th. Please see the list below for the items needed for each box.
Thank you for your generosity in helping combat hunger in our world and providing a nice Thanksgiving dinner for so many families!
Our goal this year is to collect 200 boxes!! Please help us reach our goal!!
