To spread some Valentine's cheer, the Carpenter student council, led by Mrs. Campbell and Mrs. Zajac organized our annual service project to support Uncle Pete's Lunches. Volunteers greeted our students as they came to school on the morning of Valentine's Day. Our students and families packed lunches to help support programs throughout the city. Carpenter donated 330 lunches! What a fantastic show of generosity and caring! The lunches were delivered to:
*Mother Teresa Sister of Charity Soup Kitchen and Ministry, 115 N Oakley, serving the hungry and the homeless.
*Eddie Beard Veterans House, 2425 W Jackson, serving homeless veterans with housing and other needs.
*Marillac Center Food Pantry, 2859 W. Jackson, serving the needs of the surrounding community
*Marillac Center Project Hope, 2859 W. Jackson, serving new mothers and children with skills for raising children.
*St. Sylvester Food Pantry, 2157 N Humboldt, serving the needs of the surrounding community.
Thank you for supporting this terrific event!
