Mothers' Cupboard/Food Day Tuesday
Mothers' Cupboard is a Parents Association initiative that helps to stock the Community Center at Visitation food pantry.
As part of this ongoing work, we ask MMA families to add one item to your grocery list each week and send it to school. We especially look to "FOOD DAY TUESDAY" for families to contribute. While so many of us are blessed with plentiful food, there are so many less fortunate. This small deed will do great wonders to those in need.
The collection boxes are located in the Lyceum. Below are the monthly deadlines and "items of the month." All non-perishable items are welcome.
"FOOD DAY TUESDAY"
January 30: Canned beans and soup
February 27: Protein (canned meats)
March 27: Peanut Butter and Jelly, Breakfast foods
April 24: Protein and canned beans
May 22: Breakfast foods and protein (canned meats)
The Merion Mercy Academy Parents Association provides an opportunity to foster the relationship among faculty, administration, students, and parents/caregivers while promoting school spirit and strengthening the relationships with their daughters.
