In a Pinch

“In A Pinch” began as an informal effort by parents to help St. Gabriel families in a crisis, such as a sudden illness, or loss of a job. Parents would lend a hand with babysitting, car-pooling, play dates or preparing a meal. In reaching out to families, two St. Gabriel parents, who were also alumni, realized the ongoing need for such support. In 2003, they took on the challenge of creating a formal program to help families in a crisis. Today, "In A Pinch” keeps a roster of St. Gabriel School parents willing to be called upon to help, and coordinates assistance with families in need.
