Volunteering is a great example for St. X students to see parents and friends serving the school in a special way. Volunteering at St. X requires as little as an hour or two per month, to four to five hours per week. This program is very flexible and is a great way for parents and alumni to become involved in their son's school or their alma mater!
Ways to get involved include:
Phonathon: Parent and Alumni volunteers are needed to call other parents/alumni for donations to the school's annual fund, which supports tuition assistance. The Parent Phonathon is held in November, while the Alumni Phonathon will take place in March. All volunteers receive dinner and a St. X T-shirt and other opportunities to win prizes. Parent volunteers will also receive 10 FLIKELS for their son! Click here to volunteer in November (Parent Phonathon), or to volunteer in March (Alumni Phonathon), email Kelly Stratman.
Alumni Association: Alumni volunteers are always welcome. The biggest need is having volunteer callers during the Alumni Phonathon in March. Other volunteer opportunities include writing articles for The Tiger alumni magazine and volunteering at the annual St. Joe's Picnic in August. Email Kelly Stratman or call 637.8485.
