What will your legacy be?
SAVE THE DATE
Students from James Monroe High School will work as volunteers, serving local nonprofit organizations in the City of Fredericksburg community. This year our volunteers will serve Tree Fredericksburg, Loisann’s Hope House, Mary Washington Hospice & Grief Support Services, Friends of the Rappahannock, Fairy Godmother Project, Downtown Greens, and Fredericksburg City Public Schools (VA).
Recap from the ’21 Ceili Leahy Day of Service: Volunteers (235 in total!) from James Monroe High School, Stafford High School, and Ceili’s family & friends, served the Fredericksburg community on September 11th, 2021. Together our volunteers made such an amazing impact on the Fredericksburg community through their commitment to service. Our local nonprofit organizations in the City of Fredericksburg – the Friends of the Rappahannock, Downtown Greens, Loisann’s Hope House, Mary Washington Grief Support Services at Harbor House, the Original Walker Grant building, and James Monroe High School (JM) – all benefited from the energy and dedication of each volunteer.
Day of Service
Each year we work with James Monroe High School to organize Day of Service events. We inspire, recruit and send volunteers to local nonprofit organizations that share Ceili’s values and purpose.
Day of Service Inspirational Speakers
For each Day of Service event, we invite a surprise inspirational speaker (or speakers) to say a few words once all the volunteers have arrived and are preparing to serve. The inspirational speaker helps to launch the volunteers out to the various services and motivates them to do their best.
Ms. Tammy Clark, Health/Physical Education Teacher, Certified Athletic Trainer, and Giving Tree Coordinator at JM, was the 2021 Ceili Leahy Day of Service inspirational speaker. Listen to her speech at the following link: https://youtu.be/Bx08ymKM1Q8. We are so thankful Ms. Clark could help inspire and motivate our volunteers to make a difference in the community on 9/11.
Whom we serve
We serve nonprofit organizations whose missions are consistent with Ceili’s values and passions, which included human rights and justice, the environment, and global sustainability. We also serve nonprofit organizations that provide help to families dealing with pediatric cancer and grief.
