Saint Gilbert Catholic School believes in helping others. Every school year from October through April the Lake County P.A.D.S. (Public Action to Deliver Shelter) provides a warm location for the homeless. On Thursdays, during these months, our classroom take turns bringing in a lunch that the guests of the shelter may take with them when they leave in the morning. 

The United Protestant Church in Grayslake is one of the sites that provides this service. Each Thursday evening from October to April, the site provides dinner and a place to sleep for homeless people. The next morning, when the clients leave the shelter, they are given a lunch to take with them. St. Gilbert School students have been generously providing these lunches for many years. Each week, a different grade is assigned the task of bringing in lunches. In addition to this, students in grades 6-8 also provide the food and services for 6 dinners from October-April, A week before the grade is scheduled for providing the lunches, the homeroom teacher will send a parent reminder which will indicate what should be included in the lunch.

Thank you for generously supporting this mission to help the needy in our community!
