CCC’s Christmas Service Project for St. Brigid in Partnership with
The Mustard Seed – Warm Feet for the Street
What is The Mustard Seed?
The Mustard Seed is a Christian charitable organization that builds community, grows hope and supports change for people who are experiencing poverty and homelessness. It provides basic services – including meals, clothing and shelter – as well as long-term solutions and support services such as housing, employment, health & wellness, and spiritual guidance. The Mustard Seed has locations in Calgary and Edmonton.
How is St. Brigid going to help?
We are excited to announce our next service project – Warm Feet for the Street – beginning on November 23rd with a kick off presentation with a representative from the Mustard Seed. This project will extend until Dec. 11th when we will then happily donate our contributions to those facing poverty and homelessness.
Each grade level will be asked to generously contribute to this project by bringing in specific items to stuff into a warm pair of socks. We know that Calgary’s winter weather can be extreme, so it is our goal to stuff as many socks as possible for those who find themselves out of a home during the Christmas season.
The following is a breakdown of items that will be stuffed into the socks by our students:
Kindergarten and ESII Elem. – Travel size toothpaste and toothbrush
Grade 1 – Soap and a washcloth
Grade 2 – Travel size hand sanitizer and hand cream
Grade 3 – Small sized comb and brush
Grade 4 – Package of gum and hard candy
Grade 5 – Travel size mouthwash and floss
Grade 6 – Travel size deodorant and lip-chap
Grade 7 – Small package of razors
Grade 8 and ESII Jr. High – Socks
Grade 9 – Travel size shampoo and condition
Thanks to everybody for your support and contributions.
