The school part­nered with or­ga­ni­za­tions such as Briar Bush Na­ture Cen­ter, Face to Face Soup Kitchen, Holy Redeemer Chi­nese Catholic School, Holy Redeemer Gar­den, Holy Redeemer Thrift Shop, Our Lady of Con­fi­dence, Phi­l­abun­dance, St. He­lena’s/In­car­na­tion, St. Luke Preschool, St. Martin of Tours, St. Joseph’s Manor, Sun­rise Se­nior Liv­ing and The Breath­ing Room Foun­da­tion. SBA stu­dents vol­un­teered by tu­tor­ing, gar­den­ing, do­ing arts and crafts and pack­ing food, among other ac­tiv­i­ties.

While the up­per classes were out work­ing in the com­mu­nity, fresh­men re­mained at the academy to meet The Breath­ing Room Foun­da­tion’s vol­un­teer co­or­di­na­tor, Eileen Caris­simi, and guest speaker Patty Rose. Rose shared her own story of sur­viv­ing breast can­cer, as well as in­for­ma­tion about how The Breath­ing Room works to pro­vide ben­e­fits to fam­i­lies in need. Stu­dents later made blan­kets for The Breath­ing Room Foun­da­tion and sand­wich bags for Face to Face Soup Kitchen.
