Fall Drive: Days of Service
“Enter to learn, leave to serve” is not just a motto at La Salle Prep. It is an affirmation of the personal and communal core values that we put into action each day.
This year, in addition to our annual Christmas Drive, we will be adding a Fall Drive, which begins Monday, October 24th. This drive will overlap with our regular Christmas Drive, which will begin on November 9th. The Fall Drive is part of the 50th anniversary “Days of Service” and a great addition to the holiday drive season. Items will be collected and distributed directly to the families that we support from Lot Whitcomb Elementary during the Christmas Drive. These “Household Supply Boxes” will include personal hygiene and household items that are needed by every family. The boxes will be in addition to the Christmas presents will give to our partner families. Your gift will help to ease the financial stress that many families experience during the holiday season.
Current students, their families, alumni, alumni parents, teachers and friends of La Salle are all invited to participate in this drive.
We are asking that all supplies are “standard size”, no bulk items. We will take Costco items that come in bulk but are standard sizes. Example: a six-pack of standard size toothpaste.
