Alexandria, VA – Over 200 Bishop Ireton High School students supported the Alexandria community during We Care Week, a week dedicated to giving back to the Catholic Charities Diocese of Arlington organization. From December 4 through 6, students served local schools and communities in the Alexandria area.
“I saw God in the women working at the Campagna Center,” said Jacob Aills ‘21. “They worked hard to help other people.”
“Even just being able to make them smile and be with them felt really good,” said Isbaelle Shefrin ‘21 on spending time with the elderly at Sunrise in Alexandria.
In total, the students completed over 650 hours of community service and raised more than $6,000. Christ House in Old Town Alexandria, the Child & Family Network Centers, and Community Lodgings, were just a few of the organizations the students spent time at during the three-day service event.
