Book Drive benefiting the boys living at St. Vincent’s
During Young Author Week, bring your used books to school (collection boxes will be in the MPR) so they can be donated to St. Vincent’s School for Boys. Our goal is to set up libraries in all four of the youth residential homes at St. Vincent’s , as well as have books available in the clinical offices. St. Vincent’s is a licensed, residential treatment home for ages 7-17 located just across the highway from Mary Silveira School.
