Ramona Convent Rising Senior Isabelle and Friend’s Contribution to the Community

Rising Ramona Convent senior Isabelle has seen how many people in the community have been affected by COVID-19, especially the homeless, and took action to help them along with other students from the Ramona community. Isabelle and her team assembled “goodie bags” packed with essentials and kind notes of inspiration. She made contact with a local homeless shelter and coordinated with them on what they needed most. It was a great way for students to participate and get a jump start on service hours for the fall semester!

Isabelle is happy to report that her fundraising and care package goals for this homeless care package project were exceeded! She would like to thank all those who rose to the challenge and dedicated their time and effort to the project.

Here’s the breakdown:
13 Ramona students participated
187 care packages were created each with handwritten inspirational notes
Extra hygiene products, food, and supplies were also contributed including supplies from Ramona.
$925 dollars was raised through a GoFundMe campaign. (The original goal was $750.)
Everything was delivered to the Union Station Homeless Services office in Pasadena earlier this week.

Ramona Convent Secondary School congratulates Isabelle, and thanks her for leading this excellent community project. Click here to watch her “thank you” video: https://youtu.be/vrkk8RxMxSE
