HolyCrossHigh-wRecord Staff Report

Holy Cross High School donated 2,100 hours of service during its 5th annual Great Day of Service.

Students, teachers and members of the school’s faculty fanned out across the community last month serving at nine locations in the Archdiocese of Louisville and southern Indiana.

Students performed a variety of roles Sept. 27, including:

n Cleaning and preparing apartments for needy individuals served by St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities in New Albany, Ind.

n Packing food boxes at Dare to Care Food Bank.

n Accompanying elderly residents of Nazareth Home-Clifton to Comfy Cow for frozen treats.

n Organized and folded clothes at Catholic Charities of Louisville’s clothes closet.

n Picked up trash and cleaned up the campus of the Salvation Army.

Danielle Wiegandt, president of Holy Cross, said in a press release that each year the event leaves a “lasting impression” on the entire school.

“It is important for us at Holy Cross to instill a strong sense of philanthropy in our students at an early age,” said Wiegandt. “It is our goal that they will carry that same sense of philanthropy with them as they graduate and become productive members of our community.”
