As part of the mission and philosophy of Cathedral School all students and staff are involved in outreach service projects throughout the year. Our October service projects revolve around the issue of hunger.
World Hunger Day
Friday, October 16th the students of Cathedral School will be observing World Hunger Day. The Student Council will be leading a day of activities focusing on the theme of hunger, beginning with an assembly about food insecurity in our nation and around the world.
Two fundraising activities will raise money for Cross Catholic Outreach, an organization dedicated to “delivering food, shelter, and hope to the poorest of the poor.” In one, students will be able to wear jeans and sweat pants with their uniform shirt for a $1 donation. Also, for a $3.50 donation, students will purchase a simple soup lunch, with all lunch proceeds being donated to Cross Catholic Outreach.
4th Grade Oregon Food Bank Visits
Aligning with World Hunger Day, the 4th grade begins their visits to the Oregon Food Bank this month. Each year the 4th grade students visit the Food Bank several times over the course of the year, helping to repackage food to be distributed to the hungry in our community.
