St. Vincent De Paul Society & Mrs. Geff''s Class



Mrs. Geffs' Grade 6 Class recently donated socks, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, soap, magazines, books, and canned goods to the St. Vincent De Paul Society.  Mr. Strong from the Society came to speak to the class and accept the donations.  He was very happy because they don't often get donations of toilettries.  Mrs. Geffs was proud of how her students made an effort to help others.  Students wrote a reflection on what they had learned.  Here is a quote taken from one of the student's journal.

"St. Vincent De Paul, a man of courage, wisdom, kindness and integrity.  Mr. Strong, a man following in his footsteps doing what he loves to do...care for others."
