Service Projects

Members of St. Brendan School take an active role in living out Gospel values through service to the community. A  St. Brendan Student “responds to global and community needs through acts of service.” St. Brendan School has maintained a close relationship with Alexandria House, a nearby transitional shelter for homeless women and children, through the collection of food, goods, and clothing through various drives throughout the year. Many students and families also volunteer their time and service to Alexandria House. St. Brendan School also provides consistent service in collaboration with The Nick Fagnano Thrive in Joy Foundation, formed in honor of a former St. Brendan student. The foundation primarily serves an orphanage in the Dominican Republic through the renovation of classrooms, provision of sports equipment, and update of technology.

 

In addition to these significant relationships, St. Brendan students, parents, and staff regularly participate in a number of other service projects.  These projects include monthly Hope Net donations of canned and dry goods; Veterans’ Day letters for the troops; Thanksgiving food drive; Annual Coat Drive for St. Francis Center; Adopt-a-Family, providing Christmas gifts to needy families; Christmas project at Covenant House; the Christmas Toy Drive for the parish and Alexandria House; and the Penny War, raising funds for A Friendly Place serving homeless women.
