Gifts for Good: A Decade of Impact at Day School's Student-led Alternative Gift Fair

For over a decade, members of the Day School have gathered to support Gifts for Good (GFG), our annual, student-led alternative gift fair. Started by parents as a small fair in 2006, Gifts for Good has grown into a school-wide event, celebrating and advocating for various causes, with students from Kindergarten through Grade 8 participating.

Overseen for the last 14 years by Religion Teacher & Director of Service Learning, Kankunda Klingenberg, GFG brings charitable and nonprofit organizations to Campus, where students raise money for their selected causes by requesting donations and providing handmade gifts that represent their organizations. GFG offers St. Patrick's families and friends an authentic opportunity to learn about and support student-selected causes. Please see below for a list of organizations represented by our students this year. Click the links to learn more about the important work each of them does.
