Keeping with the Fenwick tradition, all donations are sent to The Warwick House food pantry in Roxbury. Students are asked to bring in canned foods, cereal, pasta, peanut butter & jelly, baby food (no glass jars) etc, anything that is non perishable. Each homeroom participates in a challenge to see who can collect the most goods during the six day drive.
Habitat for Humanity is a global nonprofit housing organization working in nearly 1,400 communities across the United States and in approximately 70 countries around the world. Habitat’s vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Habitat works toward our vision by building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with people and families in need of a decent and affordable home. Bishop Fenwick students know they are making a difference with their involement and work through their local club.
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
