Project Smile Launch 

 

"Peace begins with a smile."   (Blessed Mother Teresa)

 

In the Lenten Season, we at Marshall McLuhan Catholic Secondary School turn our focus once again to reaching out to those in need.  This year our Lenten charitable campaign is entitled “PROJECT SMILE,” supporting an outstanding organization in Toronto that helps care for some of our city’s most vulnerable.  We are partnering with WomenAide, a non-profit group, whose mission is to donate “goods-in-kind” to women and children who have suffered abuse.  Since 2006, WomenAide has collected and donated thousands of personal care products to those in need.  These goods have been distributed to women’s abuse shelters in Toronto such as Women’s Habitat, Ernestine’s, ETA Vaughan, Red Door Family Shelter and Nellie’s.

 

In order to support the noble work of WomenAide and extend our compassion to victims of domestic abuse, we are launching “PROJECT SMILE."  SMILE stands for “Show Mercy In Lenten Efforts” and will focus on the collection of dental care products for women’s abuse sheltersWe will collect toothpaste, toothbrushes, dental floss and mouthwash for the forty days of Lent.   Our campaign is being officially launched on February 18th at our Ash Wednesday Masses and will end April 2nd.  We hope to collect thousands of items in our pink bags for women and children escaping violence, as well as bring awareness to the issue of domestic violence.
