We Care Week Supports Catholic Charities

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.  In recent years, All Saints Catholic School has responded very generously to this effort, typically contributing more than $1,000 on each occasion.  Through the years we have requested that the funds from our community be directed to the St. Lucy Project, a large warehouse in Manassas where staff and volunteers process and distribute donations to numerous food pantries in our region.

This year We Care Week will begin on Sunday, November 28.  In support of this initiative, all students are invited to participate in a Dress Down Day on Wednesday, December 1.

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.

Contributions may be forwarded to classroom teachers or the school office in envelopes marked “We Care Week”.  In advance, thank you for your generous support.

Learn more about St. Lucy Project.
