Ramona Convent students serve their community

As part of their Theology class service project, Ramona students prepare dinner for the women and children at Alexandria House who are experiencing homelessness.

Ramona Convent students in grades nine through 12 completed their first semester service project. Freshmen and sophomores were required to complete three service options, while juniors and seniors had to complete six options from a service project list distributed and discussed in their theology classes.

Many students chose to research and send current and relevant petitions to the Ramona Community to sign virtually. Most students used petitions from change.org, but it was also approved to include Sierra Club, Food and Water Watch, Intercommunity Peace and Justice Center, Avaaz, Courage California, U.S. Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking, Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns, and Human Rights Watch.

Several students chose to donate blood at Huntington Hospital and through the Red Cross.

In addition to making hygiene kits for Union Station Homeless Shelter, students also had the option to make sack lunches and drop them off.

Before Thanksgiving, Sheccid V., Marilou V., Mayela R., and Isabel V. prepared dinner for women and children who are experiencing homelessness. They made three different kinds of pasta, salad, and bread for 30 people. They delivered the meals personally to Alexandria House. Sheccid shared, "It was a wonderful experience. Everyone there was so nice, and it was a super simple but an amazing thing to do. I would definitely do it again!"
