Ascension School Winter Drive

A Ministry of St. Patrick

Ascension School Winter Drive

Overview

For our seasonal winter drive, we will be collecting hats and gloves for Ascension Catholic School in North Minneapolis from Sunday, October 17 – Sunday, November 7. Ascension is a K-8 school that teaches kids in the Catholic faith and gives them the best possible education they normally wouldn’t get. A vast majority of their families live in poverty. Because of this, the average student gets almost all their tuition paid for by donors.

What to donate

In the Gathering Area there will be a bin where we ask you bring new and gently used (no holes or stains) hats and gloves. Let’s try and collect enough for the school of 300 students!

Ascension Catholic School

Ascension has been a beacon of hope since 1897, serving children without regard to their academic level, home situations, language skills, religious beliefs, or financial situation. They serve about 300 students in their K-8 grades with 96% of them being children of color. Ascension is both a reflection of North Minneapolis but also an instrument of change. This is because of their spiritual formation and high level education.

Word from the School

St. Patrick’s Catholic Church,

As winter nears and cold weather becomes an everyday occurrence we, at Ascension Catholic School, would like to thank you for your support of the St. Patrick’s Winter Drive. Having a warm hat for your head and mittens for your hands is an essential part of living in Minnesota. Unfortunately some of our Ascension scholars are not able to afford these required items. Your gift of winter hats and mittens will really make a difference for those not able to purchase them on their own. We really appreciate your donation and the relationship between St. Patrick’s Catholic Church and Ascension Catholic School.

Thank you!

CJ McGowan (Licensed School Counselor/City Connect Coordinator)
