Valle Catholic School conducted a food drive for the local St. Vincent de Paul Society Pantry during the month of September in celebration of our Homecoming and St. Vincent de Paul’s feast day, September 27.
Vincent de Paul was a priest who is most remembered for his kindness. He worked to earn money, and then gave it all away to the poor. His work is carried on today through the Vincentians, the Daughters of Charity, and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

It may look like a shopping trip but the fourth graders are proudly loading the collected items from Valle Catholic Grade and High School families which will be given locally for the more than 100 families in need.
