Community Outreach

Throughout the year, Regis students are asked to give their support to the needy, both in New York City and abroad. Support may be given in the form of money, goods (food and clothing), or labor (ranging from asking for donations to working in a soup kitchen and delivering food). Some appeals are made on an ad hoc basis; for instance, Regis students have worked to raise money for a parish in Chinatown, and for a grammar school in Harlem. With other organizations, the school has had a long-term relationship; for several years now, Regis students have raised funds and offered services to Part of the Solution (P.O.T.S.), a shelter for the homeless in the Bronx, and for the Yorkville Common Pantry, which serves the poor and hungry of the Upper East Side.
