As part of the mission and philosophy of Cathedral School all students and staff are involved in outreach service projects throughout the year. Our October service projects revolve around the issue of hunger.
5th Grade Food Drive
The fifth grade class is currently running their service project, The Food Drive. It will run from November 9-20. Our goal is to raise 2,000 pounds of food to help those in need. All food will be donated to Lift Urban Portland and will be used to help those in our community struggling with hunger.
We would like you to bring nonperishable food to your classroom starting on Monday. Some items include canned beans, vegetables, tuna, whole grain rice, and many more.
8th Grade Sock Project
December will bring our annual Sock Project. Our students will be stuffing socks with treats and toiletries for Potluck in the Park's Christmas dinner guests. It takes a lot of candy to fill the socks. If you have extra Halloween candy at your house we will gladly take it off your hands to use to fill our 1,400 pairs of socks.
