Operation: Christmas Care!

posted Nov 27, 2020, 6:04 AM by Sarah Schildknecht

Can you help us in this Advent/Christmas season?


For many years, the students, staff and families of the St. Francis Xavier School Community have provided outreach to families who are in need at this time of year! Our pandemic situation has meant that this year’s need has increased. In order to help, each of our classes is being invited to financially support the Christmas Care Campaign, from which gift cards will be purchased. As a supportive student or family, there are three different ways for you to help us make this a success:


1. Consider using our school cash online at https://ocsb.schoolcashonline.com to donate to the fund directly on your family’s behalf (This account will be available from November 27 - December 14) This is our preferred method of collection!


2. Purchase a gift card yourself (preferably from Walmart - where both food and clothing can be purchased) and send it into the school with your child.


3. If school cash online is not available to you, your child can bring in money to their homeroom classroom for the school-wide collection from November 30 - December 14


Our St. Francis Xavier School Community is a strong one.

Let’s work together to ensure that all in our community have the means for a bright and joyful Christmas season this year.

Thank you in advance for your support.
