Helping Horses – January

Dear Parishioners,
The 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Grades will be collecting items for the Bergen County Horse  Rescue Center through January. The patron saint that we are honoring is Saint Martin of Tours who is the patron saint of horses.
The Bergen County Horse Rescue Center is a rehabilitation and retirement home for horses that have fallen on hard times. Some of the horses that they take care of have been abused. In many cases, people thought that it would be a great idea to get a horse as gift for someone without thinking about all the costs involved.
The Horse Rescue Center needs the following items which can be brought to the school until January 20:

Gift cards to Home Depot & Lowe’s
Small First-Aid kits
Latex gloves (size medium)
Antibacterial hand soap
Flashlights and batteries
Recyclable lawn and leaf bags
Large plastic trash bags
Cases of bottled water
Mane & Tail shampoo and conditioner
