OLG middle school students are working together on a fundraising project for the OLG Food Pantry. Under Mrs. Samuelson’s guidance, several students designed and  photographed images of the season.

 In turn, they created Christmas 4 x 6 photo cards  and envelopes to sell.

Cost is $3 per  card or $25 for nine cards. You can mix and match.

Cash or checks made out to Our Lady of the Greenwood School.

Please look at the great work done by students and consider how we can help you with your holiday card needs. The Food Pantry receives the profit.

Orders are due on Monday, 12/12 in order to ensure delivery by the 16th.

The order form along with thumbnail pictures of the photographs is attached.
