Halloween Candy Collection; Nativity Prep Thanksgiving Turkeys

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Happy Halloween! In November, we have a couple of our long-standing community service projects, so I wanted to get a quick off-cycle web post up to get the word out. See below for the details, and thanks in advance for you help with these projects!

Halloween Candy Collection
We need your help, as part of our service to the community we organize the pickup of Halloween candy from local schools.  This candy is then donated to a local charity that takes it to Tijuana to distribute during their Christmas celebrations. If you are able to pick up collected candy from a local Catholic school please email us at community@ndsandiego.org.

We need volunteers to pick up candy at each school/parish and then either drop it off at Church of St. Luke (El Cajon) for the Central San Diego locations, or at a house in La Jolla for the North County locations. Some schools want the candy picked up on Nov 4th, but most want sometime the week of Nov 7-10th.

For those interested in helping with the bagging of the candy for the distribution to Case de los Pobres, There will be a party to bag the candy at a house in La Jolla at noon on Sunday, November 20th.
