Annual Staples Lacrosse Thanksgiving Project 2018
Dear Westport Lacrosse Community,
Thanksgiving is a time to remember the importance of giving thanks for our families, friends and good fortune while many others in local communities struggle to provide basic needs for their families. This year, Staples Girls and Boys Lacrosse in conjunction with Westport PAL Lacrosse are working together to collect food for the Bridgeport Rescue Mission’s Thanksgiving Project. The mission of The Bridgeport Rescue Mission says: We strive to excel in the provision of food, clothing, shelter, residential discipleship, education and job training for the urban poor and addicted. Proceeds and donations from the Thanksgiving Project are targeted to feed and clothe 3,000 families in our area.
Last year was a huge success! Let’s work together again to make this a special Thanksgiving for many folks in need! All donations will be greatly appreciated! If you have any questions, please contact Matt or Linda Johnson at
Thank you in advance for supporting our teams and this project. Details are listed below. We wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!
Go Wreckers !
PLEASE pass this email to your friends! We have a lot of families to feed!
The Staples Girls and Boys Lacrosse players will be leading the effort to collect all donations.
Drop off is quick and easy—you can actually stay in your car. For those wishing to stop for a while, we will have coffee and hot chocolate to warm you up, plus Logo wear for purchase. Additionally, a number of the Girls and Boys Varsity Lacrosse Players will be in attendance helping to unload donations. Here are the details:
DONATION DATE /TIME: Sunday, November 11th: 10am - 1pm
PLACE: Ginny Parker Field (Parking lot); back of Staples High School
ITEMS to BRING:
- Canned green beans, peas, corn, potatoes, other vegetables
- Canned soups
- Gently used coats (adult and/or children)
We would prefer actual donations on Sunday since the players will be filling the trucks, but if you can’t make it to the donation area you can still help by going to the Fundraising Page to donate Virtual Turkeys which will be located at the link below.
