Battle of the Saints

Once again, St. Paul and St. Joseph the Worker Schools will be in a “battle” to see who can bring in the most food for the Community Bread Basket. The friendly competition begins Wednesday, February 14th and goes through until Wednesday, March 14th. Please see the flyer for items that are needed most. Help St. Paul School win for the third consecutive year and most importantly, help those in need in our community.

Sock Collection

St. Paul School had “Crazy Sock Day” where students were able to wear a pair of crazy socks with their uniform and in return donated a pair of socks to Kelsey’s Christmas. Over 600 pairs of socks were donated and will be handed out to patients admitted at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.

Food Collection

St. Paul School did a food collection the week before Thanksgiving to help the Community Bread Basket. The school was able to bring in over 2,100 pounds of food in just 5 days to help restock their shelves. The Community Bread Basket helps so many families put food on their table, especially around the holidays. Each class won a movie day because of the generosity that was shown. Second grade won free dress and reserved seating for the movie day. Thank you to all who helped this wonderful cause!
