Service. Charity. Compassion.
]St. Joseph School and its students are always looking for ways to help serve others both inside and outside the school. Throughout the year, St. Joseph students participate in several service activities and fundraisers focused on helping others and the community.
During the 2016-17 school year, our students raised over $14,500 for various charitable causes including St. Baldrick’s Foundation, St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry, Diocese of Joliet “Move Your Feet”, and to cover medical expenses for a student at another local Catholic School.
In addition to raising funds, our students and their families put in countless service hours to help support community needs including:
- 21,000 meals packed at Feed My Starving Children
- 30 hand-made fleece blankets and children’s books for Advocate Good Samaritan NICU
- 200 cans of soup collected for St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry
- 24 boxes assembled for the Jared Box Project
- Halloween candy collected for St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry and Guardian Angel Home in Joliet
- Valentines and Christmas Cards for St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry and U.S. Military Troops
- Christmas ornaments for the downtown Downers Grove Christmas tree
