Last week, San Clemente launched the 2019 St Vincent de Paul Christmas Appeal, inviting the community to help make Christmas complete for thousands of people in disadvantage who are missing the family togetherness, joy and happiness that should come with the season.
We are asking for donations of:
- Canned, tinned, bottled and packaged food and drink (NO NUTS).
- Items for the Christmas table like napkins, paper plates, bon bons.
- NEW clean summer clothing, toys and small gifts.
(Please do not give us old toys and clothes – they can be delivered to the Vinnie’s shop at Mayfield). We would like to encourage all students to bring in a donation and support our school appeal. Money donations are also welcome, to help struggling families pay bills at Christmas.
The appeal collection is Week 10 – so please bring goods over the next week. All donations will stay in our area and go directly to help the local people in need.
Thank you, in anticipation of your generosity.
