Lowell Catholic Comes Up Big in Season of Giving
From the smallest students, to those preparing for college, LC promotes big acts of charity in this season of giving. Around the Lowell Catholic campus, students and staff have organized several charitable activities. LC students have collected more than 70 Christmas presents and 40 pair of pajamas for families at the Lowell Day Nursery, and staff members have donated toiletries and necessary items for the Lowell Transitional Living Center. Each year during the winter break, students in the World Language program studying Spanish travel to the Dominican Republic and offer assistance at the Hogar Immanuel Orphanage. This year, a campuswide fundraiser also collected money to help with their efforts to stimulate the local economy when they travel. The money will be used to purchase food and essentials for the residents at the orphanage. Here, kindergartners bring their donations to the Chapel in LC’s Legacy Hall.
