GL Community Service Day - Every spring, our school eagerly anticipates Community Service Day (May 8), a day dedicated to serving those in need within our community. On this day, our students and staff join forces to assist non-profit organizations, church groups, and elderly individuals who require support. Tasks range from spring cleaning and yard work to washing windows, mulching gardens, cleaning vehicles, and painting porches. Funds raised by our students and staff are used to "sponsor" the day's activities and are dedicated to addressing a need identified by the students and administration within the school. This year, we aim to raise $20,000. To donate https://www.canadahelps.org/.../great-lakes.../p2p/CSD-2024/

Niagara Christian Gleaners
  1. We need your help to replenish our stash of baked goods! Our coffee breaks each morning are pretty valuable and it's just one more thing that makes serving at the Gleaners a wonderful experience. Our volunteers work up quite an appetite and the donations of home baking make such a difference. Having said that, our fridge and freezers are bare at the moment and so this note is a call-out for more home baking. If you are able to share some of your home baking with us, I'm certain that it will be well received. Please drop off at the Gleaners any weekday morning. Thanks and blessings to you.  
  2. If you're able to help please use the signup link to let me know you're coming. Two simple steps and you're signed up!  Click this link https://signup.com/go/jFcJorb. Review the options listed and choose the spot(s) you like.
Newsletter - Attached is a newsletter from CityKidz. A printed copy will also be posted on the bulletin board between the washrooms.
