RBC club members were busy this fall continuing the Casey tradition of service, with some clubs focusing their efforts to share spirit of Thanksgiving with those in need. This year the LIFE Club had help from members of Catholic Athletes for Christ to make its annual Thanksgiving Food Drive another success. The RBC community was able to provide a full holiday meal to approximately 200 families by making donations to area agencies including Red Bank’s Lunch Break and the Mercy Food Pantry in Asbury Park. Members of the Crochet for Charity Club made hats for the needy in Asbury Park.
The Walking Club headed over to Lunch Break the other day where they helped out by sorting donated clothes, shelving food items and organizing the food pantry. Club moderator Mrs. Mary Ellin Sweeney explained that they worked hard and “gained an appreciation of the needs of those less fortunate in our community.” The club has plans to help a Lunch Break family for Christmas.
The Red Bank Catholic community is thankful for its many blessings. We count among them the students and teachers who, in keeping with the true Casey spirit, continually share their own blessings, time, and talent with others.
