Holy Cross School has a special program titled Harvest Days. One day a month everyone in the school community is asked to bring a specific item for the poor. The food items are collected and distributed through Winnipeg Harvest or through the Holy Cross Parish Food Bank.
Grade 7 & 8 students volunteer at the Holy Cross Parish Food Bank during the Christmas season. Students monthly bring in various food items to support the food bank.
As part of Holy Cross School’s outreach program, the school coordinates a plan to have a large number of organizations throughout Manitoba collect pop can tabs. These tabs are recycled to provide funds for a wheelchair for a handicapped student in Manitoba.
To find out more about this program, please send an e-mail to Ms. Buccini, co-ordinator of the Tabs for Wheelchairs program.
