During the cold month of January, FXW students and families warmed hearts and spread good cheer by completing eight group service projects, including:
- Spending a combined 200 hours cleaning St. Malachy School and sorting and organizing food for 30 hours at the Lakeview Pantry
- Making 40 loveys for the babies in the NICU at Lurie Children’s Hospital
- Preparing 500 settings of silverware for the Fourth Presbyterian Church Meals Ministry
- Hosting a birthday celebration for the children at Madonna House
- Playing bingo with the residents at Little Sisters of the Poor St. Mary’s Home
- Creating recycled art gifts for the seniors at The Clare
In all, over 70 adults and 120 children from FXW kicked off the new year by Living the Legacy. If you would like more information about how you can participate in an upcoming service project, please contact Priya Valenti.
