Each year students and parishioners are asked to donate part of their Halloween candy which is used for the Christmas distribution at the Casa de los Pobres (House of the Poor) in Mexico. Toothbrushes and toothpaste are also greatly appreciated!

The Sisters of the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Queen of Peace coordinate an annual Christmas distribution where 1,500 impoverished families receive a chicken, rice, beans, canned vegetables and fruit, and a bag of candy to make Christmas festivities a little sweeter! Families also receive blankets, jackets, shoes and toys for the children.

Please leave candy donations in the school or church office.
Donations will be picked-up November 6th – 17th.

The candy collection is coordinated by Caroline Kelner, volunteer board member of the Casa de los Pobres, and Cara Bandera of the Notre Dame Club of San Diego.
