Each year at this time, they contact us to help with their Thanksgiving collection. They are requesting donations of boxes of tissues, lotion, soap, toothpaste, denture adhesive and cleaner, any type of canned fruits, vegetables and soups. Unsweetened cereals and coffee would also be appreciated. The Sisters are grateful for whatever the students in our school are willing to offer. Please send your donations to the school by Monday, Nov.19.
As we celebrate Thanksgiving this week, Mrs. Lisa Casey, Student Council moderator, and the Student Council ask for your continued support of following service projects, which benefit those whose blessings may not be equal to ours.
Greater Pittston Kid's Closet: We are asking Holy Rosary families to look into their closet and find items of clothing they have outgrown, and donate them to this worthy cause. Clothing must be clean, gently used, free from rips or tears and have no offensive language on it. This year the need is particularly great. Please send your donations to school in a plastic bag marked BOY or GIRL. Also, please mark the approximate size.
Soda tabs for Ronald McDonald House: The Student Council members are collecting pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House in Scranton.
The Holy Rosary PTO will sponsor its annual Santa's Secret Workshop on Wednesday, Nov. 28. Each grade will visit and be given the opportunity to shop for family and friends.
