With projects ranging from neighborhood cleanup to making blankets for expectant mothers and visiting elderly veterans, students at St. Thomas More School in Omaha spent a day out of class to serve others during the school’s 14th annual Community Outreach Day.
The April 13 event included a Mass and an assembly before the work began. Students also wrote about their groups’ experiences and shared their reflections at a concluding assembly.
“This is a very meaningful day and tradition for our school,” said Principal Gary Davis. “Our school staff and families put a lot of work into this day, and the experience leaves our student volunteers with lasting life skills.”
