Community Service Projects

 

Students at Saint Joseph Catholic School have a servant’s heart, giving of their time and talents to serve those in our communities. Not only do the students participate in four quarterly school wide service projects each year, they also take part in grade level projects chosen by the students, and individual service projects as a part of their Student Council membership. The need in our community is great, with many opportunities for service coming to the attention of the principal and guidance counselor. After much deliberation over which organizations Saint Joseph School could provide the most assistance, a schedule for the year is determined. The students look forward to having the opportunity to participate in fundraising and service drives that benefit our community.

 

Saint Joseph Catholic School Service projects have included:

  • Collecting canned food and money to support our own parish's Saint Vincent de Paul Food Pantry;

  • Completing a Math-a-thon to raise funds for Saint Jude Children’s Research Hospital;

  • Collecting toys for Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital at Christmas;

  • Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child—preparing shoeboxes of small gifts and toiletries for children in poverty-stricken countries;

  • Collecting money to send a WWII Veteran on the Honor Flight to visit the WWII memorial in Washington, D.C.;

  • Preparing necessary items to be used for patient gift bags for Palmetto Health Richland Hospital.

 

Student Council Service Projects have included:

  • Cleaning the road near the VA Hospital out of respect for our veterans;

  • Sorting donations at Harvest Hope Food Bank;

  • Walking dogs for housebound neighbors;

  • Holding a bake sale to raise money for the Saint Vincent de Paul Food Pantry.

 

There are countless other acts of service that our students have participated in on a daily basis. If you would like more information on ways that you can help, please contact Saint Joseph Catholic School at 803.254.6736.
