St Vincent de Paul Christmas Appeal

Dear John XXIII Families,

The St Vincent de Paul Society believes the best gifts you can give this Christmas are dignity, joy and hope. Your donation will help ease the burden of families over the upcoming months and ensure that Vinnies can continue to provide essential services in the months following the festive season. Our Young Vinnies will be collecting donations for the St. Vincent de Paul Society Christmas Appeal on the following dates:

Secondary Collection: Week 4 (5th November - 9th November)

Primary Collection: Week 4 - 6 (7th November - 21st November)

For the Secondary, donations will be collected during Homeroom and can either be delivered to X10 or given to one of our Young Vinnies volunteers who visit Homeroom class. In the Primary, each classroom will have a special hamper which they can fill then present at a Primary Mass.

This project encourages students to give thought to their donation and challenges the stereotypical face of poverty in our community. It's important to remember that your donations must be non-perishable food items.

Please find attached a suggested list of items that could be donated and also some information about the local families we will be helping.
