Students of SS. Philip and James School, Exton, donated non-perishable food items and monetary contributions Feb. 28 to the Chester County Food Bank in Downingtown.
The drive took place along with the fundraising efforts for Spring Fling 2013, the major fundraising event for the school scheduled for April 6.
SS. Philip and James is relying on the local community to help with sponsorships and donations for this fundraising event.
The school is helping to foster the spirit of kindness during this Lenten season by simply giving to those in need in the local community by donating to the Chester County Food Bank.
The food donations of 350 non-perishable items and a cash donation of $200 were delivered to the organization while a portion of the amount collected was donated, in the name of the students, toward the Spring Fling raffle/auction efforts.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
