Student Service Projects

K-2 students will be kicking off a service project at their parade on October 30 to collect socks and underwear while students in grades 3 - 8 will be taking donations, November 2 - 5, for veterans through Operation Sunscreen.


K-2 students will be participating in a Halloween Costume Parade! The event will be Saturday, October 30th at 3 pm. At the parade, PFA's Community Outreach will be hosting a drive for the Little Bit Foundation. Little Bit is committed to breaking down barriers to learning for students living in poverty through programs that serve the whole child. They are currently in need of new kids' socks and underwear which will be collected at the event. If you cannot attend, but would like to participate in the drive, feel free to donate using the Amazon Wish List link below and enter St. Gabriel School Little Bit Foundation Halloween Drive in the gift receipt space.

Operation Sunscreen is a non for profit organization that was founded years ago by Karen Irwin, the wife of a retired Missouri Guard General, General David Irwin. Karen started this organization once she became a general's wife and began to interact with the wives and families of deployed soldiers. She listened to their concerns and needs and found that one of their greatest disappointments was to think of their loved ones away during the holidays. She then worked with the Missouri Guard and enlisted their support in sending care packages from the Missouri community so the troops would have a touch of Christmas delivered to them. She asked what was most needed overseas and found that having simple things like sunscreen, mints, gum, chapstick ,or knapsack treats are what they crave the most. So, our organization does just that.

St. Gabriel was asked to donate granola bars, cheese crackers, and candy for the Christmas care packages. We will collect from Tuesday, November 2nd, until Friday, November 5. This is a great way to get rid of extra Halloween candy.
