The Nativity School’s annual Student Service Day took place during Holy Week on APril 17 at the school’s campus. Thousands of items were donated and packaged during this month-long initiative, supporting local charities Solutions for Change, Bridge of Hope and Father Joe’s Villages.
Student and parent volunteers made 189 sack lunches and blessing cards for Solutions for Change, filled 150 Easter baskets for homeless children and teens temporarily residing with their families at Father Joe’s Villages and assembled bicycles for children in crisis at Bridge of Hope
The school’s mentorship programs helped the younger students understand the purpose of Student Service Day. Eighth-graders partnered with their “kinder buddies” (photos from that event on this page) and 7th graders met with their 1st grade buddies to explain each charity’s needs and what they could do to help. Then, together, they got right to work writing cards, filling sack lunches and making Easter baskets. Visit www.thenativityschool.org.
