Saint Nicholas School held its annual canned food drive in September, donating nearly 1,000 cans.
All canned goods went directly toward Sacred Heart Community Service in San Jose – a program organized to address poverty in Silicon Valley. While that number may seem large, some of Saint Nicholas’ littlest learners donated the most, with the kindergarten class donating 254 of the canned goods. At such an early age, the Kindergarteners expressed interest in wanting to help those in need.
“I am 100% happy to help”, a fellow Kindergartener expressed her excitement over donating her canned goods. Another boy said, “It made me feel kind and loving.”
Students have been eager to give, especially since this year students are learning the importance of hospitality; to be kind and giving to fellow classmates, teachers and those in their community.
We are extremely proud of our Kindergarten class and all of the students at Saint Nicholas for donating in the canned food drive and helping those less fortunate. We look forward to the next opportunity to give back to our community!
