Central Catholic Week of Giving and Food Box Drive

We are excited to offer our Central Catholic community opportunities to help our friends and neighbors in need! 

We recognize that this year things have to be done differently to keep all of us safe. Your safety and the health of all of our students and community is foremost on our minds creating these opportunities. We have spread shifts throughout the week, and have limited the numbers of individuals helping in a more spacious environment. 

There are many ways that you can help, from donating items to volunteering your time. Students can earn service hours for donation or volunteering, and families and alumni can join in together for service to feel the spirit of the season. 

*All volunteers must wear a mask and not have traveled outside of the state in the 14 days prior to volunteering.
