St. Ann School March Works Of Mercy:
Clothing The Homeless

Older students at St. Ann School (5th-8th graders), under the guidance of teacher Janice Gaubatz have been working towards different “Works of Mercy” through the school year.
The Works educate the students, both as a way for them to learn about service to other’s role in a Christian life, and for them to see the impact that their actual acts of service have. Some of the works they have already done included provided gifts and comforts to prisoners and their families at Washington County Jail, cleaning and decorating the cemetery, and collecting shoes to help wells be built for those without water.
For March, the work of mercy was “Clothing the Homeless”. Students collected numerous hygiene items, which were donated to St. Vincent DePaul, the shelter in East St. Louis. The students gathered the items to be donated during a school assembly held just before the students were released for their spring break.
While the older students headed up the effort, the entire school participated in the collection.
