Dear Parents,

On behalf of the staff, Leadership Council, and the volunteers working for the “Shoe Box Project”, we would like to thank you for your generosity in donating gifts to help the women in the Downtown Eastside. Our Leadership Council had an initial goal of 25 shoeboxes and as the donations ‘poured’ in they began to expand their goal.  As of today, we were able to wrap close to 40 shoeboxes.  The staff, as well as the volunteers, cannot thank you all enough for opening up your hearts to those in need and spreading our theme of “Caring for Everyone in Our Common Home.”  It was a beautiful community effort.  Thank you!   OLS Staff
