Out of the Cold

Holy Rosary provides opportunities for high school students to fulfil their mandatory 40 hour volunteer commitment required by the TDSB to graduate. Most of our students continue past the 40 hours because they enjoy the experience so much. They coordinate room set up(table/chairs/breakfast table/coffee/tea/juice etc) and food preparation for the light breakfast,  serve our clients at lunch time, and then help the adult volunteers with clean-up. The hours start 8am - 1:30pm, with two shifts.

The St Vincent de Paul Society

Student volunteers are involved several times during the year; they help  with the Irish Tea in March by participating in the set up, serving tea, replenishing plates of sandwiches and dessert and finally the clean up.  This is a 4 hours commitment.

During the Christmas Season we are always looking for help to deliver food hampers to those less fortunate in our community. The students accompany a member of SSVP to pick up the hampers and deliver them to the families. This commitment is 2:30 hours.
