Holy Cross School’s Harvest Days are a special program where, one day a month, everyone in the school community is asked to bring a specific item for the poor. The food items are collected and distributed through Winnipeg Harvest or the Holy Cross Parish Food Bank.
Grade 7 and 8 students volunteer at the Holy Cross Parish Food Bank during the Christmas season. All students are welcome to contribute to the food bank on a regular basis.
As part of its outreach program, the Holy Cross School coordinates a plan to have a large number of organizations throughout Manitoba collect pop can tabs. These tabs are recycled to provide funds for a wheelchair for students in need within Manitoba.
As of July 1, 2018 there is a new drop off location for the tabs. All tabs can now be dropped off at Trailblazers Life Choices Inc. located at 1069 Autumnwood Drive in Windsor Park.
The program will still be running out of Holy Cross School, but the space for storage of the tabs is no longer large enough for the amount that are received throughout the year.
To find out more about this program, please email Ms. Buccini, Coordinator of the Tabs for Wheelchairs Program.
