School Lunch Program

St. James CWL have been supporting the lunch programs at our local schools, namely, St. Mary’s, Ecole Good Shepherd and St. Luke’s for about four years with an annual monetary donation.

A few years ago our Education & Health Chair, Shirley Conway, introduced a ‘snack’ portion where members are requested to bring their donation to our general monthly meeting or place them in the St. Vincent de Paul drop box, found in the front entrance to St. James Church, for the next two weeks after the meeting date.  These items are collected and then brought to the schools.

Below is the requested donation and updated on a monthly basis as information is received.

  • January:  peanut-free granola bars
  • February:  cheese and crackers
  • March:  tuna and crackers

Today, February 18th, 2015, St. James Catholic Women’s League made a donation of $500.00 to the Tudor Manor’s Handibus Fundraiser.

This money was half of the proceeds from the League Christmas Bake Sale in late November 2014.

Thank you, Ladies!
