North of 60 Project

Dear St. Gabriel Community, 

Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on February 26th, 2020. In the spirit of Alms Giving, the families, students and staff of St. Gabriel School are asked to help support the North of 60 Project this Lenten Season.  The North of 60 is an organization that is dedicated to helping Canada’s most northern communities by sending non perishable food items by large sea containers.

 Items collected by students at St. Gabriel will directly help and support the families living in the community of Rankin Inlet, Nunavut.  Thank you so much for helping our school community support the families of Rankin Inlet by collecting the following items:

Kindergarten and grade 1: 

454g bags of spaghetti, rotini, small bow tie and elbow macaroni

Grades 2-6: 

900g bags of spaghetti, rotini, small bow tie and elbow macaroni

↠ Expiry dates must be 2021 or later on each package to ensure freshness.↞

Our school goal is to collect ONE HUNDRED 454g bags and THREE HUNDRED 900g bags of pasta!

We believe in  the importance of educating all our students about Canada’s Indigenous peoples and providing opportunities for helping others in need. 

Thank you for your continued support helping St. Gabriel to gather and share!

God Bless!
