Thanksgiving Wish List

Wish List Flyer
Once again we are collecting food and self-care items for the residents at Queen of Peace. Queen of Peace, run by the Little Sisters of the Poor, has been serving the elderly poor since 1839.

This year, each class is assigned to particular items that they are requesting. We ask that you send what is assigned to your child’s class. Please see the attached flyer to the items assigned to each class.

If you would like to donate a ham or turkey please see the attached flyer for instructions as to where to drop it off.

Monetary donations are also welcome to help purchase Turkeys.
