Taking Care of Our Neighbors Served by Catholic Charities

The St. Sebastian’s community continued its tradition of coming together to make a difference for our neighbors in need at Catholic Charities in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving.

Throughout the fall, National Honor Society students have been volunteering their Saturday mornings at Catholic Charities’ Food Pantry in Dorchester, helping to bag groceries, which the organization then gives out during the week. On one Saturday alone, Arrows prepared a record 750 bags in three hours! Members of the senior class also helped out at the food pantry on November 14 as part of a service day, preparing and distributing over 300 bags of groceries along with the team at Catholic Charities.

Over the past week, St. Sebastian’s families, along with members of St. Bartholomew’s Parish, contributed to the Food Drive, sponsored by the National Honor Society. Non-perishable food items were delivered each morning during drop-off, helping to “cram the van.” The donations collected were delivered to the Food Pantry today - with the assistance of Class of 2022 Arrows Ryan Albertson and PJ McKeigue - and will help Catholic Charities restock shelves for those in need of food in the days following Thanksgiving.

With 1 in 3 Massachusetts families struggling to put food on the table, Catholic Charities’ food pantries have been busier than ever. Thank you to the entire school community for being so generous in this time of need.
