Mothers for Others

Blessing Bags for the Homeless – Thursday, March 26 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., McQuaid Keenan Hall
Mothers and sons mark your calendar to spend some time together for a good cause. We will be creating blessing bags to hand out to those in need. Assembling the bags is limited to ten mothers and sons, but more volunteers are needed to donate items for the bags. Please click here to volunteer or donate for this great cause.

Community Bulletin Board 
Is there an event happening in our area that would benefit our parent community? Is your place of worship offering a workshop that reflects our McQuaid values and mission? If so, this is a perfect place to share the news! Please email the announcement and event details to pa@mcquaid.org to have it included on our McQuaid web site under the Parents’ Community Bulletin Board.

Volunteer for McQuaid Parents’ Association 2020
All parents/guardians of McQuaid students are part of the McQuaid Parents’ Association. Our PA Executive Committee has been busy planning for the school year and you are invited to become involved. Share your time and talents by volunteering as little or as much fits your schedule. Check the “Parent” tab on the McQuaid website regularly for opportunities. If you have any ideas of how we can better serve you, please contact us at pa@mcquaid.org.

Help McQuaid When You Shop Amazon Smile
How can online shopping with Amazon help McQuaid? AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices and services you know from Amazon.com. The difference is when you shop at AmazonSmile a percentage of the price of your eligible purchases is donated to the charitable organization of your choice. So help support McQuaid each time you shop by setting up smile.amazon.com as your Amazon home page. To designate “McQuaid Jesuit” as your charitable organization, login with your regular Amazon user id and password, click on “Accounts and Lists”, “Your Account”, and under “Other Programs” you will find “Change your Amazon Smile Charity”.  Thanks for making this extra effort to support McQuaid!
