Blanket Drive

Our Warm Coats and Warm Hearts Coat Drive was very successful!  Now that the temperatures are getting colder, we are collecting new or gently used blankets during Catholic Schools Week.  GSC 8th Grade students thank everyone for donating coats!  Through your generosity, we collected 15 bags of coats.
