On Tuesday, students, faculty and staff of Niagara Catholic Jr./Sr. High School volunteered throughout Niagara County as part of the annual "Day of Caring." The Niagara Catholic family - 200 volunteers strong - participated in activities at 18 sites throughout the area. Students performed tasks such as gardening, cleaning, organizing food pantries, running bingo programs at senior centers, and working with pre-K students.
"Day of Caring" offers students in grades 7 through 12 an opportunity to experience the various needs of others throughout the community. It transcends culture, age and socio-economic backgrounds, while introducing students to the importance of service. The event also 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. In five years since its inception, students, faculty, staff and parents have completed more than 3,000 volunteer hours.
