Despite the pandemic and limited numbers of students allowed on campus, Bellarmine College Prep has continued to live its motto of being “for and with others.”
Its virtual Spring Food Drive in March raised $20,700 that was donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Silicon Valley.
Bellarmine’s annual Winter Warmth Drive in November took many forms. There was a drive-through drop-off option, while others donated funds online or ordered and shipped blankets and sleeping bags to the school. The results for the HomeFirst Cold Weather Shelter Program included more than 200 blankets, 250 new sleeping bags, and more than 300 pairs of new socks. Additionally, more than 100 new blankets and sleeping bags were delivered to Sacred Heart Community Service.
Bellarmine is currently holding its annual Family Giving Tree Holiday Wish Drive through December 17. This year the Family Giving Tree has created a virtual giving tree that lets donors view the holiday wishes of vulnerable children, teens, and senior citizens in our community.
We are grateful to all participants and donors, and to our amazing Christian Service Program (CSP) staff and Agape Ambassadors for leading these efforts.
