Thank you to all who attended the Back to School Clean Up Bash and the St. Josephs Family Shelter Meal hosted by the Home & School Service Committee. Everyone was very grateful for the support, and these opportunities were a great way to serve our school and Catholic community.
The Home & School Service Committee led by Cynthia Steidl-Bishop and Lindsay Gilbert have a mission that is best summed up by a quote by Desmond Tutu. “ Do a little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good together that overwhelm the world.”
Our Next Service Opportunity:
Saturday, December 14th - Wreaths Across America
Des Moines Parks and Recreation is joining the national “Wreaths Across America” campaign. Woodland Cemetery has been chosen as an official location for 2019, amongst our seven municipal cemeteries.
Sign up to be a volunteer! Individuals are needed to lay wreaths on Wreaths Day and raise funds for wreaths sponsorships. Middle School students may earn service hours for this opportunity.
Click Here to sponsor a wreath at Woodland or to volunteer.
If you are part of or have a favorite organization that needs volunteers, please contact Cynthia at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lindsay at email@example.com, so we may distribute information. We look forward to a year of many small pieces of good.
