“As a child at St. Charles and later as Assistant Principal, I loved our beautiful tradition of giving generously to those in need during the Christmas season. Thank you for organizing the alums so that we, too, could participate in this beautiful event.” — Mary Pat White, RSCJ ’59

We knew our 7th Annual Alumni Christmas Basket Collection would be different this year, but we were unprepared for the overwhelming generosity from alumni and parents of alumni! Nearly 900 items were delivered via our Amazon registry or dropped off in-person and $5,445 was raised to purchase an additional 3,700 items. On behalf of the Academy alumni, 83 baskets were contributed to the school’s overall effort, significantly impacting so many in our community!

For the past several years, alums have commemorated Philippine’s Feast (Nov. 18) with a Day of Service. Not only is this a community builder among alums, it is a direct expression of Goal 3 of Sacred Heart education: a social awareness which impels to action. In the past, our alums have served at area organizations as well as completed projects on the Academy’s campus. 

For this unique year, we are planning projects on the Academy campus where we will be following our safety guidelines (temp checks, social distancing and mask wearing). We’ll begin at 8:30 a.m. with prayer in the Shrine, followed by coffee, juice and donuts in the Cafeteria. Projects will begin around 9 a.m.

MARCH for the HEART, our Alumni Annual Fund Challenge, runs from March 17-31. Our  goal is to increase overall alumni participation, so YOUR gift ― no matter the amount ― is gratefully received and benefits every Academy student every day.

We have postponed this event and plan to reschedule later in the spring. Stay tuned for details!
