Service Projects at St. Dom's
St. Dom's believes an important part of our success and our students' success is through service projects. A requisite for all students to graduate is to participate in one or more service projects. Below is a list of all service projects taking place at St. Dom's!
Key Club is a service organization for students to volunteer in the school and around the community. Key Club will sponsors a “Date Night” at the Auburn Campus each fall. Parents are encouraged to drop their child(ren) off and go out for a date or take care of early Christmas shopping. Key Club only asks for a donation of three canned goods per child. All donations will support the Key Club’s Thanksgiving Food Drive.
Coats for Kids Campaign
As part of St. Dom’s annual preparation for Advent and our retreat, the Lewiston Campus will be taking part in a service project that will lend “helping hands” to WCSH’s Coats for Kids campaign. For more information on donating, please contact Pre-K teacher Kristine Fox.
Fifth Grade Food Drive
The fifth grade students fill the shelves of Saint Mary’s Food Pantry. This effort is a community service project that all fifth grade students participate in. Food donations can be made to any fifth grade student, or dropped off to the Lewiston Campus. Canned, boxed and bagged goods are preferred. Please do not donate perishable goods (produce, etc.). For further details, please contact the Lewiston Campus at 207.783.9323.
Mission to Mississippi
Mission to Mississippi students are already making an impact on our community. Every fall students go out to rake leaves at Mount Hope Cemetery and paint parts of St. Dom's Lewiston Campus (photos below). Each spring, seniors spend their Spring Break in Mound Bayou, Mississippi to help rebuild the community through service projects. The Mission Mississippi program began in 1998 by former Principal Mike Welch.
