EUGENE — This past holiday season, students at Marist Catholic High School in Eugene led two service opportunities that benefited the surrounding community.

In the days leading up to Thanksgiving, the Marist Volunteer Program, a club that focuses on serving the Eugene community, sponsored a “Five for the Feast” fundraiser to help with the annual Thanksgiving dinner at the Eugene Mission, a local homeless shelter for men, women, mothers and children.  

The goal was for each student to bring in $5. Marist exceeded its goal of raising $2,500, gathering a total of $3,225 in just six days.

The program's moderator, Jerry Ragan, handed the proceeds to Eugene Mission executive director Jack Tripp the day before Thanksgiving.

“[Marist] not only gave our guests Thanksgiving dinner but their breakfast and meals for the next day and a half as well,” Tripp said. “We praise God for the generous hearts of the students at Marist to raise such a significant amount of money.”

Tripp noted that each meal at the Mission costs roughly $1.85 and with Marist’s donation, the school provided more than 1,700 meals.

After the Thanksgiving break, theology teacher and campus minister Julie Ferrari, along with the Marist Chapter of National Honor Society embarked on another service opportunity—the Angel Project.

The Angel Project was an event that inspired students to act in the Christmas spirit and give to others. With the goal of making the giving experience more personal, Catholic Community Services of Lane County identified 27 families in need, one for each theology class.

Every class was given a list of wants and needs for each person in their family and were responsible for gathering items ranging from toys, clothes, grocery gift cards, gas cards, bus passes, personal items, and black slacks for a job interview.

Two van loads of items were collected and picked up the Wednesday before Christmas by Marist parent and executive director of CCS, Tom Mulhern. In addition to gathering and buying items for the family, the classes also offered prayers in class for those that they were helping.
