12 Days of Christmas Giving
Christmas Service Project Sponsored by NJHS Students
St. Elizabeth Seton School will be collecting food donations to support the Weekend Power Pack Food Program of Catholic Charities. This program provides homeless elementary students living in Collier County with food to sustain them through the weekend when school meals are not available. The students receive containers of nutritious food on Fridays so they will have sustenance throughout the weekend.
We will be collecting a different item each day. All items should be individually sized – just like you would pack in a lunch box! Donations should be brought to the courtyard each morning. NJHS members will organize and store all donations. Students are encouraged to donate on as many days as they would like!

Students and families are asked to practice the safety protocols of social distancing and wearing face coverings at this event to ensure the health and safety of all. We hope to see you there!
We are in need of new or gently used white Christmas lights (outdoor string lights) for this event. We are also collecting donations of outdoor Christmas decor (religious) and live poinsettias (any size). Volunteer hours given for donations. Thank you for helping us make it a special event!
Building a Culture of Catholic Stewardship
Our school community needs donors and sponsors to support our mission. Please help spread the word to friends, family and others who believe in the importance of affordable, quality Catholic education now and for future generations. On #GivingTuesday, December 1, 2020, we will ask all in our community to give charitably to ensure the gift of Catholic education at St. Elizabeth Seton endures.
