Academics are important at St. Clare School in Southwest Portland, but there is an equal emphasis on community. Part of the plan is promotion of social justice and service to others at an early age.  

The entire student body and faculty participate in the school’s many community service projects throughout the year. Students at St. Clare are expected to develop an appreciation of others’ opinions and acknowledge the dignity and worth given by God to all people. This happens through direct service to the poor, hungry, physically challenged, homeless, elderly and children.

Once a month, the St. Clare first graders organize a school-wide food drive. They participate in the entire food collection process, from advertising the monthly food drive, setting out bins, bringing food to school, counting the food, and carrying it over to the food bank, where it can be distributed to people in need.

School leaders encourage families to participate together. This year, nine parents of first graders will have the opportunity to assist in counting and helping the children carry the food over to the food panty in tote bags. So far, the effort has collected 1,196 cans and boxes of nonperishable food.

“Some people don’t have a lot of money and can’t buy food so we bring it to poor people,” explains Charlotte Richman.

“Jesus was nice to others," says Megan Cosper. "We have to be nice to others too and give to people in need. If I give to the needy, others might do it too.”  

Sophie Hawkins adds: “We can’t just be nice to our friends. Other people have more problems than us and it’s nice to give to them.”

Eliza DiGuilio summed it up like this: “It makes me happy to give to poor people. They will live better and it makes our community better.”
