Santa Catalina School students have wasted no time in jumping into service projects.
On Saturday, August 26—at the end of the first week of school—seven students took a service trip to Lakeside Organic Gardens in Watsonville, where they helped Ag Against Hunger glean 3,930 pounds (4 1/2 pallets) of baby bok choy. The harvested produce went to local food banks.
The Children's Fund club is collecting donations for those affected by Hurricane Harvey. If you live locally and would like to contribute, just stop by the main office. The money will be distributed through Catholic Charities USA.
And Team Santa Catalina is raising money and recruiting participants for their second Walk to End Alzheimer's, taking place October 7 in Monterey. Their goal is it raise $2,000; last year, the team raised just over $3,000. Visit the team page to donate or join the walk.
This is just the beginning. Service is one of Santa Catalina's core missions, and students take it to heart with projects throughout the year.
