School Wide Lenten Project – 2017

GKTW

This year St Bernard picked GIVE KIDS THE WORLD for our Lent Project.

This organization partners up with Make A Wish to allow children with life threatening illnesses to escape the long days in a hospitals and head to Florida to enjoy time being a kid.
St. Bernard raised $922 during our school mass
St. Bernard families created 400 Wish pillowcases for them as they are traveling long distances to their treatments.
St. Bernard families donated 10  bags worth of toy donations.
The stories from St. Bernard families that have evolved from this project have been rewarding.

A grandson sewing pillowcases with his grandmother
A little boy folding endless amounts of socks to earn money to donate during mass.

It’s a proud feeling to know how this project has grown every year and by giving back we get back so much in return!
