Special to 1812Blockhouse

St. Peter’s School students delivered 160 Giving Bags on Thursday to Harmony House to be distributed to those in need in the Mansfield community.

Students collected these items during December as a campus-wide Advent service project. Inside each Giving Bag are cold-weather items, including hats, gloves, socks, lip balm, and hand warmers. In addition, each bag also includes personal care items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, and soap.

“The Advent Season is one of prayer, penance, and sacrifice, in anticipation of the coming of Jesus’ birth on Christmas, said Laurie McKeon, St. Peter’s Head of School. “Our Giving Bags service project is a meaningful way to teach our students about the many blessings they have been given and that making a sacrifice to others is an integral part of being in service to others in our world.
