Back to School Drive
For the first month of school, La Salle High School collects academic based donations that are given to those who otherwise may not afford the tools required to gain an education.
La Salle High School is starting it’s 19th year of cooking at Union Station in Pasadena. The school participates in the Adopt-a-Meal program on the 4th Tuesday of each month. Typically 6-8 students and adult moderators participate.
Every Advent season, the La Salle community provides Christmas presents and a Christmas party for families in need.
Catholic Schools Week Service
Beginning with the freshman class on Monday of a scheduled week, each class is sent out on a different day to various service sites in the Los Angeles area.
March Madness Week of Drives
Throughout this week, the Service Team organizes various donation drives. In the past this has included drives such as school supplies for an elementary school, games for a children’s hospital, and clothing for a homeless shelter.
St. Baldrick’s Fundraiser
Participants garner sponsorships to support the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which funds research for childhood cancer. The Service Team hosts a fun-filled evening event to culminate the fundraiser, where the participants shave their heads on-stage. Last year, over 35 students, faculty, and staff shaved their heads, raising over $6,000 for St. Baldrick’s.
In addition to its large-scale projects, La Salle High School’s Service Team organizes and participates in many smaller events. If you have a suggestion for a project or event, the team would love to hear it. Please contact Ms. Grima or Julia Jacques with questions.
