As the holiday season approaches, so does the giving mentality that complements it. The Social Justice club has multiple opportunities coming up to contribute to the holiday cheer in our community!
The Christmas Care campaign will be starting on Monday, November 27. Sheets explaining what items are being sought after this year will be delivered to homerooms within the next week. Look out for our beautiful posters as well! Make a difference this Christmas!
To raise money towards families in need this Christmas season, there will also be a dress up day coming up in the month of November. Make sure to keep your formal attire ready!
Thank you to all of the students who wore purple on November 20th! St. Joseph's raised over $500 for Violence Against Women Services Elgin County. These funds will be donated towards emergency transportation to the shelter. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of many in your community and raising awareness for Women's Abuse Prevention Month.
