Nazareth Academy seniors finished up the year -- and their high school careers -- performing random acts of kindness around the community.
Every student from the Class of 2014 went to various sites throughout the Chicago area, where they volunteered in various social justice and social service projects involving children, teens, seniors, the financially disadvantaged and the environment.
Teachers, staff, administrators, campus ministers, and Sisters of St. Joseph are involved in the planning and implementation of this day.
Students and adult-leaders gave their time at the following locations:
Cardinal Bernardin Learning Center
Caring Place for Kids
Community Nurse Association
Saint Cletus Food Pantry
Saint Frances of Rome Grade School
Saint Francis Xavier Food Pantry
Save the Prairie Restoration (Beamis Woods)
Nazareth Academy, a Catholic, coeducational, college preparatory high school serving families from 55 communities and over 100 grade schools in Chicago and the western suburbs, established in 1900 and sponsored by the Congregation of St. Joseph, values scholarship, service, spirit, and unity.
