RONALD McDONALD HOUSE

At this time of the year, we focus on the gift that God gave us at Christmas …

Jesus, our Savior! What an amazing gift! We have been so blessed!


This year the students of St. Paul Lutheran School will be giving gifts as well. These gifts will go to help an organization and group of people that are not as fortunate as we are. This year our gifts will go to the Ronald McDonald House in Austin. Each child is asked to bring at least two items from the attached list. Bring the gifts to school unwrapped. The second, fifth and sixth graders will deliver them to the Ronald McDonald House on Friday, December 18. Our prayer is that the students will experience the joy of giving! Bring your items to school by Wednesday, December 16th.

These are the “top 10” items on the wish list.

Home Depot gift cards

Curling Ribbon

Kitchen dish towels (neutral colors)

Trash bags (13 gallon and 33 gallon)

9-volt batteries

Laundry detergent

Pledge Furniture Wipes
