School Community Service Project

As a community service project, St. Gertrude School is collecting pull tabs year round to donate to Cincinnati’s Ronald McDonald House. The Ronald McDonald House provides a “home away from home” for the families of critically ill children seeking medical treatment at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

We encourage parishioners to join our efforts to help these families. Pull tabs can be found on beverage, soup and pet food cans. Please drop off your pull tab donations in the Parish Office.
