CLARK, NJ – Families of Saint John the Apostle School know what love looks like according to parent, Jennifer Gill.  Even though school has gone virtual, the messages of living life in service to others goes on as students and their families help those in need at St. Joseph Social Service Center in Elizabeth.

According to school officials more than 30 families from Saint John the Apostle School donated 70 bags of groceries and 62 loaves of sandwiches in one month.

Gill said the response has been amazing with many families donating weekly.  “One family made special treat bags with inspirational messages for children,” she said.  “Another family ordered groceries from Target and had them shipped.”
