The 3rd Grade Class will be hosting our November Stewardship Appeal: Feed the Hungry Food Drive to benefit Serra's Pantry. This class recently visited Serra's Pantry at the Mission Basilica to learn about the needs of the hungry in South Orange County. They learned that the three most needed items locally include: Peanut Butter, Jelly, and Cereal as families can stretch these items into multiple meals. They also learned that organizations Serra's Pantry are very resourceful and work in collaboration with local grocery stores and other agencies to provide items such as produce and protein that might not otherwise be available.
Our school wide food drive will begin on November 5th and will continue through November 15th. Our 3rd grade is asking each learner to bring in at least one item (or more) to help support those in need in our local community! The learners can bring items to their homeroom class. Let's all join together to support those in need and to make a real impact. Go Monarchs! Go!
Serra’s Pantry has provided a handout with a list of items needed, a copy of this handout will go home with the learners to help with the collection.
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you made me welcome... Matthew 25:35
