Our GV Lenten Initiative

This year during the Lenten season, our Social Justice Group has organized a collection of toiletry items for "Operation Come Home". This is an organization that works to support homeless youth (ages 16-25) here in Ottawa. We had a guest speaker who met with our Social Justice Group, to share information about this program, and we're really excited to partner with them this year. Operation Come Home serves approximately 1000 youth per year and our contributions will really help make a difference. 

Operation Come Home Lenten Collection Items By Grade Level:


Socks (adult sizes)

Grade 1


Grade 2

Lip balm

Grade 3

toothbrushes and toothpaste

Grade 4

Bars of soap or body wash

Grade 5


Grade 6

Shaving cream

Collection Dates : March 20 - April 26

In addition to our collections, we will have some special Giving Days. We will have three special days during the Lenten season for students to donate a small fee ($2) to help support Operation Come Home. Parents will have the option of paying for all three days in advance on Cash Online, or students can bring in a toonie on the day of the event.

March 29 - Hat Day

April 12 - Backwards/Inside Out Day

May 3 - Hawaiian Day

Thank you for your support!
