Camp Harbor View Cleanup 2011

Last year Xaverian alumni, students, family, friends and faculty members attended the first ever Xaverian Outreach Day. The day was dedicated to providing service to Camp Harbor View. The group spent the entire day cleaning and painting the camp to get it ready to serve the over 800 11-14 year olds from Boston’s neighborhoods this summer.

Camp Harbor View is a partner of the Boys and Girls Club of Boston. Our goal is to gather alumni, students and other members of the Xaverian committee to participate in a full day of clean-up, painting, landscaping and building at the camp following the wear and tear of the winter months.  The ability to assist the camp in this effort will save them over four weeks of time due to the limited staff available to them to perform the same task.

Xaverian and Ursuline Students Raise Funds For Charity

Last Sunday, students from Xaverian Brothers High School and Ursuline Academy teamed up to raise money for My Brother’s Keeper in Easton. The 1st Annual Purple and White event featured a football game between Ursuline Juniors and Seniors, a cheerleading halftime show featuring Xaverian Juniors and Seniors, a ‘Dunk the Dean’ dunk tank, and a postgame cookout.

The students did a fantastic job, and the event successfully raised over $4,000 with the proceeds going to My Brother’s Keeper. For more photos of the event, visit Ursuline’s online gallery. For a great video of the football game, click here.
