12 Days of Christmas Giving
Sponsored by St. Elizabeth Seton NJHS and Student Government
St. Elizabeth Seton School will be collecting food donations to support the
Weekend Power Pack Food Program of Catholic Charities in Collier County
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 & SGA members will organize and store all donations. Students are encouraged to donate on as many days as they would like!
Grateful, Thankful, Blessed are we!
Since March 27, 2021, we have received $550K in donations, added to our starting funds, brings us to over $750K for the Campus Expansion Program! We are continuing our campaign to have the program completely funded. Please refer anyone you know who may be interested in helping to: https://saintelizabethseton.com/giving/
As a reminder, the School Store is open every Monday morning, from 7:30-8:00am in and outside the gym. Students may purchase basic school supplies for $1 or less.
