Children of St. Peter School Partner
with Dave’s Marketplace to Make a Difference.
As we sit in our warm homes after another snow day, we might not stop and think of the thousands of homeless who are on the streets at this time of year. The Diocese of Providence recently opened The Emmanuel House homeless shelter. Since it’s opening in early December, the shelter has been overflowing. The Emmanuel House has been featured in the news as they add beds. They have asked members of the community to donate items for its everyday operations. The facility was established as a “sleep shelter only”, with no food provided. But with the dangerously cold weather they have been open around the clock as a safe haven for homeless families and individuals.
The children of St. Peter School want to make a big difference! The school partnered with Dave’s Marketplace to deliver pre-packaged snacks and beverages on Friday, February 4th.
The students were asked to include an extra snack as they pack their lunch this week. Snacks were collected at the school and at the end of the week, the snacks were brought to The Emmanuel House by representatives of St. Peter School.
