St. Franics Annual Turkey Train

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As part of the St. Francis community involvement initiative, we are participating in a Food Drive for the needy again this Thanksgiving.  This year, our Food Drive will be held in conjunction with the Smiths Falls Police Association.  All of the groceries collected will be used in their “Stuff the Cruiser” campaign to help our local Food Bank.  Each day we are asking students and staff to bring in a non-perishable food item.

Monday, Oct 1st– soup and crackers
Tuesday, Oct 2nd– canned fruit and vegetables
Wednesday, Oct 3rd– cereal/rice
Thursday, Oct 4th– canned meat, fish, or baby food
Friday, Oct 5th– pasta and sauce

Each class will tally the number of items collected and a special surprise will be awarded to the classes in each division who have demonstrated the Christian value of charity to the highest degree.  Next Friday, Mme. Jordan and Mrs. Croskery’s Grade 1 Classes as well as members of our St. Francis We Team, with an escort from the Smiths Falls Police, will participate in the annual Turkey Train and will deliver the food to volunteers from the Food Bank.  Thank you for your cooperation in this very worthwhile cause.

Yours in Catholic Education,

St. Francis Staff and St. Francis We Team
