OLL Catholic School supports local families

Fundraisers support people in need with food boxes and turkey dinners

Because of the hard work of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School parents and students, many area families will have a special holiday meal, or an emergency good box.

To raise funds to help families in need, students and parents created a Fall Carnival in October involving games such as homemade PLINKO, mini-golf, a cake walk and haunted house. Directors Mortgage sponsored a photo booth and cotton candy stand, and profits reached a record of $1,787, all of which will be spent on local families.

The student council representatives presented St. Vincent de Paul with a check at the Thanksgiving school assembly last week. That same week, nonprofit St. Vincent de Paul Lake Oswego Conference volunteers delivered 68 food boxes to families and 220 turkey dinners to St. Anthony in Tigard to use in their community. Christmas food boxes are going to be delivered to more than 300 families on Dec. 17. The Lake Oswego Safeway store and its customers also offered support with donations.
