Hygiene Drive for Catholic Charities
Our Student Council had a hygiene drive to support the homeless at Pinellas Hope and our 5th grade students made blessing bags with the donations.
Disaster Relief Fund
Hurricane Ian caused significant damage throughout the state of Florida. Many in the most impacted areas have lost everything. In response to the devastation, the Diocese of St. Petersburg collected donations for the Disaster Relief Fund. Our school community raised $1,657.
Food Drive for St. Vincent de Paul Society
Our Student Council had a food drive for the St. Vincent de Paul Society and collected 1,650 pounds of food. Student and parent volunteers delivered and sorted the food at the pantry.
Christmas Gifts for the Pasco Family Shelter
Students performed acts of service at home to raise money for Christmas gifts for the children in the Pasco Family Shelter. $2500 raised.
Ornament for Angels Senior Living
During our Advent retreat, students made Christmas ornaments for the nursing residents at Angel Senior Living.
Feeding the Homeless
We might be on break but that doesn’t mean MTC students are not working and helping out the community! On Tuesday, some of our NJHS students, staff, and families practice our mission statement of fostering service to others by preparing and distributing Thanksgiving lunch to the community of Pinellas Hope. Pinellas Hope is a Catholic Charities program giving temporary shelter to homeless men, women, and children. They are always looking for volunteers, donations, and help so if you are interested, please go to https://pinellashope.org/ for more information. It was a humbling experience and taught us to not only be thankful for our blessings but to always give and be a blessing to others.
