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 around 130 Thanksgiving boxes to the Waller-Williams school. This year, Waller-Williams has 120 students, and St. Paul will again provide Thanksgiving boxes to these students’ families.

The Boxing Event is Back!
October 31, 9am-12pm
We are planning to have a boxing event on Sunday, October 31.
To help reduce potential crowding in the room, the boxing event will last all morning instead of only the Sunday school hour, as in previous years.
Covid-19 precautions will be observed – masks and social distancing will be enforced, and we will have tables spread out as much as possible. We may even set up two rooms for boxing.
So if you are comfortable doing so and would like to put together a Thanksgiving box or two, we would love to have you stop by McAdams Hall on October 31 anytime between 9:00am and 12:00pm.
