Fifth grade students from SS. Colman-John Neumann School (SCJN) in Bryn Mawr recently provided Thanksgiving meals for 25 needy families in the Philadelphia area, working ahead of the holiday to collect turkeys, food items and money for its November service project.
The students organized the food, decorated the boxes and loaded 25 boxes and 26 turkeys into a van headed for St. Francis Inn which serves the poor and homeless in Philadelphia.
This donation is the largest that the Inn receives on an annual basis, and SCJN has participated in this service project for more than 20 years.
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.
