On Sunday, volunteers gathered at the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen to celebrate our Alumni Day of Service. From start to finish, alums created a Thanksgiving meal: prepping ingredients and making turkeys, sides and desserts, setting up and decorating the dining room and serving the meal, then clean-up.
“The highlight for me was working together to make the recipes,” shares Alexandra Sanchez ‘06, Alumni President. “We all were laughing, enjoying time together, talking about our holiday traditions while making a meal that so many would get enjoy.”
A special note of gratitude to Mike and Diane (Carroll ‘76) Boerding for organizing this event and to Academy alumni and friends who created this special holiday dinner! We are also grateful to those who were unable to attend that made side dishes or desserts or donated cash for ingredients.
“It was a joy to witness the smiles and appreciation of the guests served at the Thanksgiving dinner,” says Colleen Hunt Leahy, Special Events & Alumni Functions Coordinator. “The food was delicious, the tables were beautiful, and the entire meal was enjoyed by over 60 patrons.”
We are happy to continue this tradition of sharing the love of the Sacred Heart with our local community. #WeAreSacredHeart
