November is Service Month here at DePaul Prep, and we are one week away from Thanksgiving Break. Over the break next week there will be numerous chances to help out and do service, whether it is helping out at a food pantry or shelter serving a meal, or helping an organization that is doing a clean-up or painting project. While you are being thankful for your blessings, don’t forget to help others, as well!
YWLA’s annual Thanksgiving food drive is now in progress. You have until next Monday to contribute. This year we have been asked to collect pasta and pasta sauce. NO GLASS CONTAINERS, PLEASE. CANS ONLY. For every food item you donate you will receive a raffle ticket for a gift bag worth over $50. Food will go to Catholic Charities for distribution.
Seniors! Don’t forget, Ms. Crawford and Ms. Garay will be in 503 during lunch periods to help with college applications. Be sure to stop by and see them if you need help.
