Dear Families,

Welcome to our Double Lunch Day Initiative. St. Gabriel is hoping to help those less fortunate in our community. We are joining together to help The Ottawa Mission by providing lunches for their back-to-work and back-to-school programs. We have designated Wednesday, Nov. 22nd and Wednesday, May 2nd to bring in a second lunch. These lunches not only help many valuable members of our society, but they also lessen the load of The Ottawa Mission.

How can you participate?

The first Double Lunch Day for St. Gabriel School will be on Wednesday, November 22. On this day, we ask that you send your child to school with an additional lunch. The lunches can have perishable and nonperishable items. We ask that they are healthy lunches and that they be packed in a bag that will travel to The Ottawa Mission (brown bag, Ziploc bag, etc.). Please do not include mayonnaise on the sandwiches. Feel free to include a thoughtful, spiritual message and/or a hand drawn picture that will be collected separately and sent in a separate special container. The lunches will be transported to The Ottawa Mission shortly after being collected in the morning. Upon their arrival at The Mission, the lunches will be distributed to the various programs in need. Please see their website for further information http://www.ottawamission.com/

The Mission is also in need of a few additional items:

-winter clothing suitable for adult males (gloves, hats, etc)

We will be sending a number of socks that the Gr. 3 classes collected as part of their Socktober social justice enterprise (approximately 350 pairs of socks)!

Your support in this initiative is truly appreciated by the patrons of The Ottawa Mission. The staff also send their thanks. If you have any questions about the Double Lunch Days please feel free to contact us at the school.

Sincerely,

The St. Gabriel Double Lunch Day Committee
