Holiday Giving: Thanksgiving Collection and Christmas Stockings

A message from the Salesian Studies Office:

Thanksgiving Collection: Only Four More Days to Donate! 
This year, we are inviting anyone who is able to donate $25 Cub Foods gift cards. This store and the dollar amount were specifically requested by the Visitation Sisters as the most helpful for people in their neighborhood. Cash or checks – and larger amounts! - are also welcome and $25 gift cards will be purchased with whatever we receive. Gift cards will be distributed by Vis students and the Sisters on Tuesday, November 21 after school.

Donations may be dropped off at any time with homeroom teachers (please label for “Campus Ministry”) or can be brought directly to the Salesian Studies office. In order to match what we typically give in food donations, we have set a goal of collecting $7,500 in gift cards. We recognize that everyone is affected by the economy and invite each to help as you are able. Thank you in advance for your generous donations.

Christmas Stockings

This is Campus Ministry’s biggest service project of the year and we're getting ready to begin! For almost 30 years, we have provided Christmas stockings for kids around the Twin Cities - from cutting to sewing to decorating to filling and delivering, it's a total hands-on project for our students. Stockings have been cut and sewn and ready to fill! Please see the details here and sign up as soon as possible. If your daughter in in Upper School, she will sign up during her religion class. Names and stockings will be sent home as soon as we receive them from the agencies with whom we work (likely right after Thanksgiving). Thank you in advance for your generous participation.

Please reach out to Claire Kranz, Director of Salesian Studies, if you have any questions at or 651.683.1734.
