For the second year in a row, Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas has committed to sending four seniors to Aunt Bette’s Community Pantry every Wednesday morning as part of their Commitment to Justice program. The senior service experience provides Jesuit students the opportunity to understand more deeply the systems of oppression and injustice that deny others their basic human rights and how they have knowingly and unknowingly contributed to such systems. We are so appreciative of the hard work, positive attitudes, and commitment from these fine young men.
A big thank you to our friends at St. Andrew United Methodist Church who returned for their 3rd community cleanup project on MLK Day. This hard-working team of 19 volunteers spent all morning pruning trees and cleaning up debris in the alleys around St. Philip’s athletic field and playground, as well as around two other lots owned by St. Philip’s. Three large dumpsters were filled to the brim! This continued cleanup project is so important as it contributes to the beautification of the neighborhood. Special thanks also to Gold Auto Parts Recyclers who continues to provide dumpsters for beautification projects.
