Cyclone Aid began in the early years of St. Christopher. The students and staff at St. Christopher saw a need in the community and decided to put their beliefs into action.
On March 24, 2018, students, teachers and community volunteers will canvass Sarnia and the greater area for non-perishable food items. The food goes to the Inn of the Good Shepherd to support their soup kitchen and to help create hampers for the Easter season, as well as to replenish their constantly depleting food stores for those in need.
Canvassers meet at St. Patrick’s at 8:30 am, receive packages and instructions and begin canvassing at 9:00 am. Once the area is finished, groups meet back at the school for a free lunch and good cheer! Also, feel free to stay in the cafeteria and help sort food; this time can be used toward more volunteer hours, but is also just an amazing experience to be shared with family and friends.
As Catholics and followers of Jesus, it is our humble responsibility to feed the hungry in our community. At St. Patrick’s, the issue of hunger weighs heavy on our hearts, and we encourage every student to become involved in helping those in need in our own backyard, both as Catholics and as human beings.
If you and/or your child(ren) would like to give your time for this worthy cause, please come to St. Patrick’s High School at 1001 The Rapids Parkway, at 8:30 am on Saturday, March 24, 2018. You may come as an individual and we will find you a group, or come with a group of friends. You can bring your own driver, or we will find one for you. All are welcome to be part of this special experience. We hope to see you there!
