Student Council Events

United for the Troops - Defend the Holidays Drive
Help to make this Christmas special for our troops overseas!  During the remainder of November, Kennedy Catholic students will be collecting supplies for our troops.  This initiative is being spearheaded by the Student Government in conjunction with an organization out of Mahopac, NY called United For The Troops.  The supplies will be sent overseas for the Christmas holiday.  The project is being called "Operation:  Defend the Holidays".  
Collection of desired items for the troops is already underway.  Each grade has been provided with a wishlist and a collection bin.  
The actual packing will occur during Thanksgiving weekend to make sure that the collected items reach the troops by Christmas, so send your donations into school this week!  Let’s show our appreciation for our men and women in uniform by remembering them at Christmas!

Day of Giving 
Dec. 9th has been designated a Day of Giving. It will be a dress down day to raise money for the Anne Marie McGowan Murphy Memorial Fund.  In addition, a blood drive will be held that day.

Advent Food Drive
The students of Kennedy Catholic will be collecting canned goods during the Advent season to assist those in need over the Christmas holiday.  Collection will begin in December and bins will be established for each grade.  All donations will go to the food pantry at the Community Center of Northern Westchester.
