Thanksgiving Boxes

Thanksgiving Boxes

During the month of October, St. Paul will again collect Thanksgiving Boxes to provide to the families of Waller-Williams students.

The Waller-Williams Environmental School is a JCPS school for students with severe emotional or behavioral issues. For the last few years, St. Paul has partnered with Waller-Williams to provide Thanksgiving boxes to the families of their students. Each box contains all the items for a Thanksgiving meal, except for the turkey, which is provided by another partner.

Last year, St. Paul delivered 114 Thanksgiving boxes to the Waller Williams school. This year, Waller-Williams has 130 students, and St. Paul will again provide Thanksgiving boxes to these students’ families.

In past years, we have collected food items and then gathered for a big boxing day to assemble the boxes. With the COVID-19 restrictions, we will not be able to gather, so we will do things a little differently. Here’s how you can help:

Purchase the following items, put them in a box, and bring them to St. Paul!

2 boxes of stuffing
1 box of cornbread mix
1 box of potatoes
2 boxes of mac n’ cheese
2 items of gravy
1 large can of yams (or 2-15oz cans)
2 cans of green beans (15oz cans)
2 cans of corn (15oz cans)
2 desserts (cake or brownie mixes)
A note or card of greeting (optional)

If you don’t have a box to put the items in, no worries. You can drop off items in bags, and the youth will box the items for you!
