‘Make a Difference Day’ and ‘Lasallian Day of Service’

Make a Difference Day

In recognition of national “Make a Difference Day,” 108 Saint Mary’s students served 47 Winona residences on Oct. 25. As part of these efforts, the women’s hockey team assisted with a Red Cross smoke alarm installation. Teams of students, Winona firemen, and Red Cross and community volunteers installed 100 alarms and changed many batteries and canvassed 390 homes.

Lasallian Day of Service

Also on Oct. 25 around 100 alumni participated in the sixth-annual Lasallian Day of Service. This is a day that allows alumni to come together in the spirit of the Lasallian mission in service to others. Winona students, staff and alumni volunteered at the current Habitat for Humanity house.

Volunteer sites were set up in the Chicago, Twin Cities, Saint Louis, Milwaukee and Denver areas.
