Serve-A-Thon 2023: Blessing Box: By-the-Numbers

We stocked our Blessing Box with Blessing Bags! We packed 171 Blessing Bags during our October Serve-A-Thon! 🤗💙👏
Fr. Chad blessed them all before we put some into the Blessing Box out in front of the Food Shelf. We will save the rest to help keep it full for people in need all through the year. 
We are blessed to have so many opportunities on campus to serve our community. Kindness and service are who we are at St. Jude of the Lake! 💙

Serve-A-Thon Acts of Kindness💚😇

In addition to the Blessing Bag items collection, students carried out our 30 Days of Kindness Calendar all last month for Serve-A-Thon. We picked up trash, wrote letters to veterans and spiritual bouquets for seminarians, thanked people and staff from the school, made flower centerpieces for our neighbors at Encore, taught our school buddies new skills, decorated the blessing bags and more!
