O'Dea High School

Service Projects

Service is central to the O’Dea Experience.  Current students, alumni, parents, faculty, and staff put their faith in action throughout the school year participating in service events, community outreach, and fundraising efforts that serve others.  Our service projects aim to generate opportunities for our entire community to grow together and serve as Christ did.

Listed below are some opportunities we participate in.

Christmas Family Project

Every Advent season, O’Dea students prepare for the coming of Christ through preparing items for families in need to celebrate Christmas. This project is executed through O’Dea’s students’ St. Vincent DePaul chapter’s long standing partnership with Providence Regina House. Students engage in the project with the support of their Mentor Teachers and O’Dea’s Mother’s Club arranges the deliveries to families.

Canned Food Drive

During Thanksgiving O’Dea runs an all school canned food drive to help stock the shelves of Northwest Harvest. O’Dea’s drive collects an average of over 5,000 pounds of food per year.

Cathedral Kitchen Outreach

Our students work closely St. James’ Cathedral Kitchen offering warm food for those experiencing food insecurity.
