Living through giving; a way of life for St. Anastasia
The goal of St. Anastasia Catholic School is to promote academic achievement within a Christian environment. Our students become united in faith, academically strong, and socially responsible. One of our goals is to create responsible citizens. We have partnered with various organizations within our local community to share our blessings and instill gratitude and giving in our children.
Thanksgiving Food Drive for St. Margaret Center – Our students and their families donate turkeys, canned food and a variety of staples to give to those in need with the help of the St. Margaret Center in Lennox, CA.
Westside Thanksgiving hygiene drive donations – Our students and their families are asked to give bars of soap, toothbrushes, combs, etc to support the Westside Thanksgiving Day Dinner organization. This inter-faith group made up of individuals from various churches, schools, organizations, and corporations. The dinner guests come from all walks of life, from homeless individuals and working poor families to college students unable to get home for the holiday. In addition to a complete traditional Thanksgiving meal, we provide our guests with access to free blankets, haircuts, medical consultations, clothing, and hygiene items.
Adopt-a- Family - Opportunity to teach our children compassion and help a family in need during this special time of the year. Each classroom is given a local family to sponsor.
Giving Boxes - For the past several years, the children of St. Anastasia Catholic School have made a “Giving Box” for needy children in the Los Angeles area. This year the giving boxes will be given to the children of 2 parishes - Ascension and Sacred Heart. It is an opportunity for each child at St. Anastasia to help bring a smile to a needy child at Christmas time. Your children will present their gift boxes at the Mass of Immaculate Conception.
Hundredth Day of School Hygiene Collection - As part of our celebration of the 100th Day of School, the students of St. Anastasia Catholic School collect toiletry items for St. Margaret Center in Lennox, CA. St. Margaret Center truly appreciates the generosity of our parents and students. With our help, they are able to provide basic items to members of the local community. Please help us achieve our goal of at least 100 of each of the items.
Easter Baskets for St. Margaret Center – The students of St. Anastasia donate items to create gift baskets for the St. Margaret Center.
Service Project Sunday - The 7th and 8th graders will display their service projects outside mass one Sunday in April, so the entire parish can participate, learn, give, and grow.
