Arch­bishop Neale stu­dents do­nate to Lit­tle Sis­ters of the Poor in D.C.

Maryland Independent - - Community -

Stu­dents at Arch­bishop Neale School (ANS) re­cently com­pleted a char­ity drive to as­sist the Lit­tle Sis­ters of the Poor in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., ac­cord­ing to a re­lease. As in years past, ANS fam­i­lies were en­cour­aged to do­nate per­sonal care items for use by the se­niors served by the Lit­tle Sis­ters of the Poor in the Jeanne Ju­gan Res­i­dence and the St. Joseph Vil­las in North­east D.C., the re­lease states.

Mem­bers of the ANS chap­ter of the Na­tional Ju­nior Honor So­ci­ety as­sisted their fac­ulty ad­vi­sor Mandie Far­ren and the school’s outreach com­mit­tee chair­per­son Carol Cipol­lone in mak­ing col­lec­tion boxes, gath­er­ing and sort­ing the dona­tions, and load­ing the many boxes into the van sent down by the Lit­tle Sis­ters of the Poor. Brook­lyn Beebe, 14, of Is­sue is an ANS eighth-grader and NJHS mem­ber. “[NJHS mem­bers] get to show the younger kids the things we do so they might want to be in Honor So­ci­ety some­day,” Beebe said in the re­lease. “All of [the ANS stu­dents] get to prac­tice giv­ing back to oth­ers now, so when we’re older we can con­tinue to do that and pass that on to younger peo­ple.”
