Alverno Heights Students: Taking Part in Meaningful Community Service

Alverno Heights Academy (AHA) is proud of all the community service its students took part in last semester. Alverno girls donated items to the Humane Society in San Gabriel Valley and Riverside, gathered pajamas for the women of Alexandria House and made dinner for their residents, they collected Hoodies for farm workers in San Jose; they donated to the Adopt-a-Family through the Archdiocese; they collaborated with a couple of new organizations, El Nido, collecting board games for homeless families; and they gave hygiene-filled backpacks to the Eaton Canyon Foundation for homeless encampments.

They also volunteered to cheer on bike riders at @ciclavia. AHA students also collaborated with some great projects, including donating books to Union Station Homeless Center in Pasadena. Lastly, the girls worked with alum Ellen Driscoll and the @cscpasadena!

Alverno thanks its students for continuing the school’s tradition of service and expresses its thanks to Ms. Guerrero for leading the Campus Ministry program with such a giving spirit.

About Alverno Heights Academy

Alverno Heights Academy is an all-girls, independent, progressive Catholic, college preparatory school dedicated to its mission of empowering each young woman to be exactly the person she wants to be. Located on the property of the former Barlow Estate in Sierra Madre, California, Alverno Heights Academy was founded in 1960 by the Sisters of St. Francis who sought to create an environment in the San Gabriel Valley where young women could become informed and knowledgeable persons. Later renamed Alverno High School and sponsored by the Immaculate Heart Community, Alverno’s program—academic, spiritual, aesthetic, social, and physical—has been shaped by the staff, trustees, and students. As Alverno Heights Academy once again, the school remains committed to its mission by encouraging each of their young women to be who they imagine.
