Concern for the poor and social justice—one of the five Lasallian Core Principles that guides the St. Michael's educational experience. And our students live out this value on a regular basis through the myriad of social programs they volunteer at and assist with. Here are a few of the ways our students are working to make this world a better place:
- This past fall, a group of students picked more than two tons of apples from an orchard in Tesuque and delivered them to The Food Depot.
- Another group of students served 80 elderly residents at Villa Alegre and Camp Alegria during Thanksgiving week.
- During Homecoming Week students sponsored a no texting and driving campaign.
- During the Christmas Holiday, the school came together and collected more than 100 coast and many dozen socks for the Community Foundations Annual Coat and Sock Drive.
- Our students supported the Youth Shelters through a donation of toys and books during Christmas.
- Students conducted a fundraiser that provided enough money to purchase 2,000 meals for the homeless, working with The Food Depot.
- Our students have donated more pints of blood than any other school in Santa Fe the last two years through blood drives the school hosts in conjunction with United Blood Services.
