Week-at-a-Glance February 10

The season of Lent begins on February 26th and as a Catholic school community we will be participating in various initiatives to encourage our students to pray, fast, and give to those in need. This year, there are two Lenten initiatives that will be run by the Me to WE student ambassadors: the Socks 4 Souls Sock Drive for the homeless and Rafiki Bracelet sales to support communities in need in both Kenya and Haiti.

Sock Drive – We are asking families to donate ‘new in package’ adult socks for our Sock Drive. Your donations will go to Socks 4 Souls Canada, ​which is a non-profit, volunteer organization committed to contributing warmth, comfort, dignity, mobility and health to homeless people by providing them with new clean socks.​The Sock Drive will run from February 10th to April 6th.

WE are Rafikis Campaign – WE are Rafikis is a WE School fundraising campaign that helps empower artisans in developing communities in Kenya to take charge of their futures.

HOW TO ORDER RAFIKI BRACELETS:

    • Go to the WE are Rafikis website to see the different Rafiki bracelets that are available for ordering. https://wearerafikis.com/
    • Complete the order form that was sent home with your child’s name and description of the bracelet you wish to order.
    • Bring the money and completed order form to school. Rafiki bracelet sales will take place every Monday and Friday.  The WE are Rafikis Campaign will run from February 10th to March 6th.

Sweater Drive – As part of St. Luke School’s ECO initiatives and National Sweater Day, the Eco Team is asking for donations of gently used (clean) sweaters of all shapes and sizes. Sweaters will be collected for the month of February and donated to help those in need face the cold. What better way to promote clothing recycling? Please send your sweater donation to school with your child and we will collect them each day until Friday, February 28th.

Thank you for supporting St. Luke students in their efforts to make an impact on the lives of those in need, both near and far.
