Fall Service Projects Update

This fall, SMYPP has two main service projects to give members the opportunity to give back to their community and help others in need. This Saturday (11/10), SMYPP will be traveling to Philadelphia for a day of service at the St. Vincent de Paul Center. We will plan on carpooling and leaving around 8:00 AM from Wilmington and/or Hockessin. We will participate in habitat-type work (ie, general house repair) and will visit with the retired priests and brothers. We may possibly tour a Miraculous Medal Shrine located at the site  Breakfast and lunch will be provided. We should be back in Delaware by 4:00. Please contact Liz (elizabeth.ryan303@gmail.com) to RSVP-so we can organize carpools or if you have any questions.
Could you imagine a Thanksgiving with no food? Neither could we. SMYPP is sponsoring a family for St. Mary’s Thanksgiving Drive. Please consider donating to this worthy cause. Items must be delivered to St. Mary’s on Tuesday, November 13th. If you cannot make it to St. Mary’s on that day, you may also deliver them to Lottie, in Wilmington, anytime prior to the 13th.  We will need the following:

3 Turkeys
6 boxes of stuffing
6 large jars of turkey gravy
9 cans of string beans
6 cans Cranberry sauce
3 large boxes instant mashed potatoes
3 dozen eggs
3 1-pound butter
3 large cans of juice
3 packages of rolls
3 cakes
3 pies
9 cans of, or bagged fruit

Please e-mail Lottie (lottie.johnson88@gmail.com) if you are interested in participating. Be sure to include which item(s) and how many (of each) you will bring. If you do not have time to shop, monetary donations are also accepted.
