Turning On The Light...
For Those in Our Community!
We have a long-standing tradition at St. Anne's of helping Windsor’s Downtown Mission, it is a Christian-based, registered, not-for-profit organization.
The Downtown Mission opened its doors in 1972, serving and advocating on behalf of the men, women, and children who struggle with poverty and homelessness. They conduct a variety of outreach programs, including offering meals to the less fortunate. Through donations of food, the students here are able to contribute and at the same time demonstrate God’s love through charity as proclaimed in the Bible.
As with previous years, every Thursday morning, all food donations are picked up and delivered to the Downtown Mission by Mr. John Staley, retired principal of St. Anne's and a member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. You know Mr. Staley, if you attended St. Anne's in the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's... He's been around forever and continues to do great things!
We would ask that our students helps us out by packing an extra lunch to bring to school on Wednesday or Thursday Morning!
Each lunch should be placed in a bag and contain:
- 1 sandwich (any type)
- 1 piece of fruit (e.g. apple orange, banana, etc.)
- 1 drink (juice box)
- 1 snack (e.g. granola bar, cookies, yogurt).
It is incredible the power that we have to change the lives of those around us. We thank all those who have contributed in the past and thank you in advance for your generosity in supporting this community outreach project.
And As Always...
We ask first and foremost for your prayers!
