Holy Trinity High School is in the midst of planning our annual Service Day during which the entire student body is deployed to sites across the city to do service projects for various charities and businesses.
This event is a community-building event for the students at Holy Trinity, and it benefits many community organizations. Each year we get feedback from the organizations we help praising our students’ efforts and thanking us for helping with jobs that might not have otherwise been done.
Jose Alatorre, Director of Group Services at Northwestern Settlement House said of last year’s service day group“Holy Trinity students and chaperones did a great job. Settlement staff that worked with them commented to me on their diligence and positive attitudes….”
Service Day student groups consist of 10-15 kids who go to sites like the Greater Chicago Food Depository, St. Helen School, The Polish Museum, Franciscan Outreach, and more. The event is on the morning of Friday, May 2nd, with work taking place from 9:00am to 12:00pm. We are looking for charities or businesses that have a job for the students during that time.
Jobs typically range from things like filing and clean-up to packaging food for needy families to reading to preschool children. Groups are chaperoned by HT staff and are willing to do spring cleaning, office tasks, shelf stocking, store room organizing, landscaping, and more.
Anyone interested in having a group help at their business should contact the school by April 25 by calling 773-278-4212, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by filling out the HTHS Service Day Interest Form.
