This year’s NCSW theme, "Communities of Faith, Knowledge, and Service," encompassed several concepts that are at the heart of Catholic education. The Diocese of Dallas designated Thursday, January 29th as a school-wide service project day. For this school-wide service project, the SMS students decided to make blankets to donate to the Grayson Crisis Center. The Crisis Center serves approximately 600 women and children each year. They offer emergency shelter, crisis intervention, counseling, and support services to women and children who are survivors of domestic and sexual violence. The students truly enjoyed making these 24 blankets and were excited to be serving a worthy cause.
