5th grade visits the Andre House this week. After Mass and a tour of their facility and learning about their mission, we ate lunch with the staff and volunteers. Fr Tom, on the right in stripped blue shirt with sunglasses on his head, is the director of the Andre House.
Becca, a young lady & graduate of Notre Dame is on staff and was our tour guide for the day. She was delightful and shared so many personal experiences of her love in working with the homeless, especially the guest of the Andre House.
Our task was to bring in donations of travel size toiletry items. We put together toiletry bags for their guest to receive. These are pictures of us sorting the toiletries and then assembling the bags. We learned about the importance of treating our homeless brothers & sisters with love, dignity, and respect.
