LAKE MICHIGAN CATHOLIC LEAF RAKING 2017

LAKE MICHIGAN CATHOLIC LEAF RAKING 2017

BENTON HARBOR, MICHIGAN – Every year the Lake Michigan Catholic high school students volunteer to go out and rake leaves for the community.  The leaf raking took place on November 10th and it was a great time!

The students are split up into small groups of four or five people and are assigned a chaperone for the day.  You could really tell the positivity in the students and just how grateful they were to be able to help out their own community.

The Lake Michigan Catholic students and staff have been raking leaves for the community for a very long time.  This event services people that are part of the Saint Joseph Parish and support Lake Michigan Catholic.

The Lake Michigan Catholic students also rake leaves for the elderly or people that are unable to do it themselves.  This way their lawn has no leaves and it will look fantastic.

Also, leaf raking is a great way for some of the students to go out and meet other parishioners and supporters of our school.  Many of these people had their children attend Lake Michigan Catholic which is why they greatly support LMC.

All in all, I think that the annual leaf raking of the Saint Joseph/ Benton Harbor area is a great tradition for LMC students and a great way to help the community in need.
