One facet of St. George Catholic School's mission is to promote faith development through service. In the spirit of sharing our time, goods and service with others, the student body participates in monthly stewardship projects.
- Backpack Food Drive: The goal of this project is to understand the needs of children who are less fortunate than us. Throughout the year, assigned grade levels donate specific food items to be donated to the Greater Baton Rouge Food bank Backpack Program.
- Get Acquainted with Homebound Members of our Community: Letters to Elderly of our Community. The goal of this project is to understand the needs of the elderly and homebound members of society. Each homeroom class is assigned a St. George Church parishioner who is homebound. The class writes letters and sends cards throughout the year. Often, homebound friends respond with cards and letters to the students.
- Sock It to Childhood Cancer: The focus of this project is to develop compassion for those who are ill. During September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the student body collects money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Students are encouraged to earn money to donate to our drive by doing extra chores at home. This project culminates with students wearing their favorite "crazy socks" and participating in a St. Jude mini-walk in the school gym.
- Fair Baskets: By participating in this stewardship project we aim to develop a sense of community by contributing to our St. George Parish/School Fair. Each grade level is assigned a theme to purchase items for baskets of prizes to be raffled at the annual St. George Fair.
- Thanksgiving Food Baskets: During this special project, we strive to share the joy of giving to those less fortunate than us. Each class collects specific holiday food items to create a Thanksgiving Day meal for a local family in need. Prior to donating the food baskets to our parish St. Vincent De Paul Society, the baskets are blessed during our school liturgy.
- Bucks for Bikes: The objective of this project is to understand the needs of the children less fortunate than us. Students are asked to donate $3 to our fund to purchase bikes for children and adults in our area. As money is collected bikes are purchased and displayed in the cafeteria for students to see the fruit of their efforts. This stewardship project is in collaboration with the St. George Church's Advent Giving Tree project.
- Catholic Schools Week Stewardship Project: As we celebrate Catholic Schools Week, we desire to develop a sense of mercy for others by participating in a Diocesan-wide project which provides donations to our local Catholic Charities chapter. St. George's students are asked to donate kitchen supplies to the project.
- Lenten Food Drive: We appreciate the gifts God has given us, especially an abundance of food in our country, and we aspire to give thanks by helping stock the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank. Students in each grade are assigned a specific food item to donate. Prior to being delivered to the food bank, the food items are blessed during the school liturgy.
- Toiletries for Bishop Ott Center: Necessities of everyday life are shared with those who do not have them. Each grade level collects a specific toiletry item to be placed in care packages provided to the Bishop Ott Center residents as they visit for shelter.
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me. Matthew 25:35-36
