Immaculate Heart High School and Middle School students recently raised awareness and support for people in need during the holiday season through a Justice Fair and the Adopt-a-Family Program.
During Immaculate Heart’s semi-annual Justice Fair, an event organized by theology teacher Tim Crehan’s contemporary moral issues class, students sold handmade items and edible treats to raise more than $1,000 for the California Wildfire Relief Fund, Everytown for Gun Safety, Kids in Need of Defense and Mental Health America.
While students were preparing for the Justice Fair, the entire school community collected food and necessities for the Adopt-a-Family Program, organized each year through Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown Los Angeles. Additionally, middle schoolers knitted and sold scarves to benefit families in the program.
On Dec. 6, Adopt-a-Family volunteers visited the Immaculate Heart campus to pick up the bags and boxes of items students had donated.
On Dec. 17, more than 100 Immaculate Heart students and their parents went downtown to join other Adopt-a-Family volunteers to deliver packages of food, necessities and gifts to families in need on Skid Row.
Founded in 1906, Immaculate Heart High School and Middle School educates young women in grades 6-12 on its campus at 5515 Franklin Ave.
