On Tuesday, May 9, students, faculty and staff of Niagara Catholic Jr./Sr. High School will volunteer throughout Niagara County as part of their annual "Day of Caring." With almost 200 volunteers, the Niagara Catholic family will participate in activities at 18 sites throughout the area.

Students will perform tasks such as gardening, cleaning, organizing food pantries, running bingo programs at senior centers and working with pre-K students. This day offers students in grades 7 through 12 an opportunity to experience the various needs of others throughout the community.

The event transcends culture, age and socio-economic backgrounds. It introduces students to the importance of service and allows them to feel the inner joy that comes from helping others.

This year, students will complete 1,000 hours of community service to the community through Day of Caring. In four years since its inception, students, faculty, staff, and parents have completed over 3,000 volunteer hours.

For more information about Niagara Catholic Jr./Sr. High School and its Day of Caring, contact Michele Ricciuti at 716-283-8771, ext. 103.
