St. Thomas Aquinas High School
Here's an amazing organization who already volunteers with Jack & Jill!
For close to three decades, St. Thomas faculty and students have cared for the children and families of Jack & Jill. Each Monday, nearly 30 students share their afternoons with us, providing essential one on one love and attention.
During the school year, students can be found upstairs sorting clothing and preparing bags of food that will go home that evening with a family. Others can be found nestled in a corner of a classroom working with a small group of children, reading, sorting blocks, and practicing writing their names.
At Thanksgiving, the Center becomes an assembly line filled with overflowing baskets. Each basket is filled neatly with boxes of stuffing, canned cranberries, potatoes, onions, festive napkins, gift cards for the Turkey, and of course, a pumpkin pie!
In summertime, when typically you find students running as far from school as possible, you can find groups of 20 students assisting us with cleaning and beautifying for the school year to come. These summer students clean toys, wash windows, and spread mulch on our playground, ensuring our children have a safe and clean home each and every day.
