Immaculate Heart Gives Back
Both on campus and in the community, Immaculate Heart High School and Middle School are giving back this holiday season through the semi-annual Justice Fair and the Adopt-a-Family Program.
At the Justice Fair, an event put on by theology teacher Tim Crehan's Contemporary Moral Issues class, students set up booths selling handmade items and edible treats to raise funds for good causes. This year, the students chose to support the California Wildfire Relief Fund, Everytown for Gun Safety, Kids In Need of Defense, and Mental Health America. All told, the CMI students raised over $1000 for their charities.
While the CMI students were preparing for the Justice Fair, the entire school community was also collecting food and necessities for the Adopt-a-Family Program run through Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. On Friday, December 6, Adopt-a-Family volunteers arrived on campus to pick up the many bags and boxes of items students had donated -- so many, in fact, that they needed two trips to pick them all up!
Then, on Saturday, December 17, over 100 Immaculate Heart students and their parents headed downtown early in the morning, joining other Adopt-a-Family volunteers from all over the city to deliver the assembled packages of food, necessities and gifts to Skid Row families in need.
