Christmas Food & Gift Drive
SI collaborates with St Dominic’s Parish and Rose Court Senior Housing to organize and coordinate one of the largest food and toy outreach programs in the city.
SI Students, via personal donations and the annual Christmas Dance, raised a total of $17,000 last year. This money went directly to purchase a variety of gifts that we used to stock our Christmas Store. SI students are in charge of selecting and purchasing these gifts as well as organizing them at the store.
SI students, through their fourth period classes will create 225 Food Boxes, each containing a menu of healthy, reliable food items for our family guests. Each food box is valued at about $75. Classroom teachers are vital to this partnership as they provide educational moments as well as personalized incentives to make our drive a success!
Christmas Family Store – Last year we welcomed numerous families to the store. Parents were provided new, unwrapped toys alongside their meal box. Parents are accompanied by SI students and then driven home by Father Club members. Families were given one food box, a gift certificate for a turkey and several bags of healthy fresh produce.
The Food and Toy Drive is a 30 -year tradition of holiday sharing with families in need.
The SI community collects non-perishable food, new toys, and money to help 225 families celebrate Christmas.
All is distributed through a partnership with St. Dominic Parish and Rose Court Affordable Housing. Each participating family is a client of either St Dominic's Social Services or Rose Court Affordable Housing. Each family receives a box containing the makings of a holiday feast as well as some pantry staples, fresh produce, and a gift certificate for a turkey.
