St. Charles School has a strong history of service to our community. Our school children are taught early that they have been blessed with many gifts and that they are called by God to share these gifts with others. They participate in a wide range of community service activities that reflect the Catholic Social Teachings which support our Christian values of charity and a sense of justice.
St. Charles Serves the Community (SCSC) originated in 2014 with the intent to encourage students, families, faculty, and staff to volunteer in the Bloomington community. A SCSC committee member identifies the volunteer opportunity, publicizes it in the school and parish communities, and leads the volunteers in the service.
Last school year, SCSC volunteered 225 hours in our Bloomington Community. They helped The Boys and Girls Club, Habitat for Humanity, Hoosiers Outrun Cancer, Meals on Wheels, and My Sister's Closet. In 2018, our annual School and Parish Thanksgiving Food Drive provided several thousand pounds of food to the United Ministries Food Bank. In addition, our Middle School provided 125 bags of groceries for the St. Vincent de Paul Christmas Meal Program.
The SCSC committee is an active group of dedicated individuals who take pride in encouraging stewardship by members of the St. Charles community and would welcome the involvement of others who have the same drive. Contact Terri Schonhoff if you would like to be involved, or know of a need of whom we can serve.
“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as a good stewards of God’s grace.” 1 Peter 4:10
