Bourgade Catholic High School is on a mission to help those less fortunate, all school year long. With the start of the New Year, Bourgade Catholic remained dedicated to a new philanthropic goal: to feed the hungry.
In honor of the Junior’s Day of Prayer and Service, on January 19th, students from the high school spent the day at Feed My Starving Children.
Bourgade Catholic is no stranger to Feed My Starving Children, a non-profit in Mesa, Arizona. Since August, the school’s faculty, senior class, National Honor Society and drama club have hand-packed meals specifically formulated for malnourished children in more than 70 countries at the non-profit agency. The softball team and drama club are also among the school groups to feed the hungry, delivering sandwiches, donuts, and water for homeless to eat.
“I knew that what I was doing compared to the extremely hard work of the employees at Feed My Starving Children, was just a small piece of the puzzle, but the way everyone worked so well together, I just felt such a sense of community and purpose”, explains faculty member JinHee Huff. “I’m looking forward to going back; I have already scheduled a session to take the Drama Club to participate in this awesome experience.”
Bourgade Catholic High School immerses its students and faculty in the practice of giving back to the community and selflessly serving others. Feeding the Hungry will be the focus of students and faculty for the remainder of 2017; a school-wide resolution to serve those who need it the most.
