2nd Annual Christmas Benefit Basketball Game

From Mr. Gerber, OLC Principal

Dear Parents, Grandparents, Students, Parishioners, and Friends of OLC: “We Welcome, Serve, and Celebrate ALL Students by Demonstrating Spiritual Educational Teamwork at OLC.”

I hope you are well. God is a giver. It is important to appreciate God’s many gifts and graces. Christmas is a time to give back, especially to those in need. It is important to give back to others and thank God for the gifts he bestows upon us throughout the year. Likewise, it is a lesson for us to be mindful of helping others throughout the year. It doesn’t have to be limited to the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. On December 21, our school is going to participate in a school-wide activity that is largely based on giving back to others to help the needy during Christmas. The activity is based on anonymous service to help those in need in receiving a Christmas meal. It is important for our students and staff to be givers without recognition. We are also going to have fun while conducting this activity. On Friday, December 21 at 1:00 P.M., OLC will have its 2nd Annual Christmas Benefit Basketball Game. The 8th Graders will play the OLC Staff All – Stars. This is a school-wide event that all OLC students and staff will participate in. Admission for the students is a minimum of two canned food goods that will be donated to the Carey Food Pantry. Those items may be brought to school at any time. Financial donations from parents, grandparents, parishioners, and staff will be used to purchase the food gift certificates from IGA.

The objective for this event is to have fun and raise money as a service project for the local needy families during the holidays. The goal is to anonymously provide 15-$100 food gift certificates from the IGA (no alcohol or tobacco) to help provide meals for community families. Our local Carey Police Department will be making the anonymous deliveries. OLC staff will make recommendations to me in terms of identifying needy families, and that information will remain confidential.
