Victory in Service to Others - Our Lady of Victory School

Middle school students are offered opportunities to develop leadership skills and spiritual growth by participating in an organization called Victory in Service to Others (VISTO) that raises awareness of and funds and supplies for those in need.

Some of these school-wide activities are:

  • Preparing and collecting weekly lunches for the homeless
  • Collecting clothing and supplies for underprivileged newborns
  • Holding bake sales and “cakewalks” to raise money for victims of natural disasters both nationally and internationally
  • Collecting and assembling bags of personal grooming supplies for the homeless
  • Holding canned and boxed food drives for the poor

Students are also invited to participate in the annual coat drive and “Giving Tree” program in which school and parish families contribute Christmas gifts to children in shelters. Students in charge of these activities are invited to explain these events and share the experiences of serving during the activity to the school during morning assembly.
