St. Gabriel's School is hosting a food drive to support the Kanata Food Cupboard. The Food Drive is to support our focus of "Hunger" through out the season of Lent. Please send items into school to help stock the shelves of our local food cupboard. 
Thank you!

Also Mrs. Cummings class is collecting personal care items for the Shepherd's of Good Hope. They will collect these items and deliver them to persons in need who are currently staying at their shelters. Please send donated items into school in a freezer bag. Thank you so much for all your support towards our community projects!
