Ramona Convent senior inspires others with community service project for homeless

Isabelle and her team assembled goodie bags packed with essentials and kind notes of inspiration.

Ramona Convent senior Isabelle Mix-Vachon saw so many people in the community being affected by COVID-19, especially the homeless, that she and other students from the Ramona community took action to help them.

Isabelle and her team assembled goodie bags packed with essentials and kind notes of inspiration. She made contact with the Union Station Homeless Services office in Pasadena and coordinated with them on what they needed most. It was a great way for students to participate and get a jump start on their service hours required by their theology course for the fall semester.

Isabelle was happy to report her goals for the homeless care package project and fundraising were exceeded. She thanked those who rose to the challenge and dedicated their time and effort to the project with a video message. Thirteen Ramona students from all grade levels helped make 187 care packages all with handwritten inspirational notes. Extra hygiene products, food, and supplies were also contributed, including supplies from Ramona. Isabelle was able to raise additional funding for supplies through a GoFundMe campaign.

Ramona is a welcoming Catholic college-prep high school for girls in grades nine through 12. Ramona graduates face the future with an extraordinary education, a global vision fueled by Catholic values, an independent spirit, confident leadership skills, the support of their Ramona sisters, and the strength of a legacy of more than 130 years of excellence.
