Together with all schools across the York Catholic District School Board, we have partnered with the charity, Missionaries of the Poor, to host a Thanksgiving Food Drive to support the people of Haiti.
Our students had the pleasure to attend a presentation on Tuesday October 10th 2017 given by Father Brian Kerr, associated with the Missionaries of the Poor, and two founding sisters of the Compassionate Franciscan Sisters of the Poor. Father Brian had all students engaged as he sang and shared meaningful stories. His message is clear:
“Please help feed the hungry! Help the poor children and families in Haiti devastated by Hurricane Matthew and now suffering from the damages and flooding of Hurricane Irma”.
Students are asked, if possible, to bring in one non-perishable food item for the Food drive, with preference given to canned meat or tuna.
Thank you Mme Santeramo for organizing this event!
