Book Drive December 18-22

posted Dec 18, 2017, 6:51 AM by St. Philip School

The St. Philip Social Justice Club is excited to be leading our Advent Works of Mercy Initiative. We will be collecting new and gently used children’s books (picture and chapter books) to be donated to the students at our sister school, St. Elizabeth. If students could put a note inside the book they bring, saying why they loved the book, it would be a great literacy link between our two schools. During this year, students are asked to be the Good News to the world. This is an opportunity for our students to follow the footsteps of Jesus in getting our hearts ready for his birth.


We will be collecting the books from December 18-22, 2016, and then we will arrange for them to be sent over to St. Elizabeth School after Christmas.
