The Office of Service Learning would like to thank those who served our community during the week leading up to Easter. Thank you to those who shared their time and talents!
Trocaire hosted two local service opportunities – one on Monday, March 21 at the South Buffalo Community Table, and one on Wednesday, March 23 at Habitat for Humanity. Trocaire also forged a partnership with Sarah Sutcliff, Saints Peter & Paul Roman Catholic Church’s director of Faith Formation, in which confirmation candidates and their families served alongside Trocaire students.

Habitat for Humanity volunteers served here in South Buffalo at 65 Sirret St. Their abilities were stretched as they learned new skills such as painting ceilings and walls, nailing and sanding and even sawing woodwork. Pictured are Alissa Kozakiewicz (nursing), Abigail Zielinski (nursing), Victoria Mariani (nursing), Amy McCarthy (nursing), Eric Haines (general studies) and Nicole Pace (surgical technology). Not pictured is Rachel McCormick (RT professor).
There will be another opportunity to serve this summer during United Way’s Day of Caring on August 17 – Catherine McAuley School of Nursing administrative assistant Melissa Fahey has agreed to lead this effort– there will be more information to come, and additional opportunities to serve our community will be offered in the fall.
