About this Collection
This has become a parish wide event. On Friday 2/1/13 52 kids 1st-12th grade made 1,618 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the Casa Maria Soup Kitchen i Tucson, then 18 of our 6th-12th graders took those sandwiches to Casa Maria. Then Saturday afternoon was the start of our all night sleep out. The 45 6th-12th graders are homeless for a night. They go to our St. Vincent de Paul Society food pantry and are given a canned vegetable or some rice or pasta to bring to our community soup. They do a walk around the parish grounds with all of their belongings and are given possible problems that could arise on the streets. they watch a movie that shares some aspect of homelessness. This year, we watched a Hallmark movie "Beyond the Blackboard" , ate dinner, learned about the poverty and homeless numbers in our rural area. After each of the four Masses the kids collected $2,377.35 for SVdP and 3,625non perishable items for Stand Up For Kids . They had fun but learned so much.
