Each year the Diocese of Arlington hosts “We Care Week,” an annual opportunity for schools to acknowledge and support the outstanding work of Catholic Charities. For the past five years, we have linked our Thanksgiving Luncheon to an outreach effort to benefit the St. Lucy Project, a large warehouse in Manassas where staff and volunteers process and distribute donations to numerous food pantries in our region. In the past, our community has very generously responded to this effort, typically contributing more than $1,000 each year.
This year We Care Week will begin on Sunday, December 6. In support of this program, all students are invited to participate in a Dress Down Day.
- Monday, November 30 – Blue Cohort
- Tuesday, December 1- White Cohort
- Virtual Learners may select one of the two days.
The cost to participate is $1.00 with families invited to make an additional donation to support this wonderful cause. Again this year, we will request that the donations from our school specifically target the needs of the St. Lucy Project.
In advance, thank you for your generous support.
