Days for Girls Donations Needed

October 10, 2018, Author: CONeal

St. Thomas is hosting a Days for Girls event on October 26 and 27th. While volunteers to create the kits are certainly welcome, they have a need for materials! Your donations will help make kits that will enable girls around the world to attend school each day of the month. Click here to learn more about Days for Girls.

Your donation will make a very real difference in the life of girls, and is a great way to practice our virtues of Kindness and Compassion. The front desk will accept any donations you send with your child, or drop off in person. The kits will be assembled on October 27
