Heart to Heart Program

  • Heart to Heart is a committee of parent volunteers that connects St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School families in need with support to help them navigate a challenging or busy time. In the past, Heart to Heart has offered meals, carpools, playdates and other support to families who were welcoming a new baby, experiencing the loss of a loved one, enduring an illness, tackling a move, or dealing with a period of transition.

    Heart to Heart volunteers can help in two ways:

    #1. Serve as the “eyes and ears” of the community to let the school’s administration and/or Heart to Heart co-chairs know if a family is going through a challenging period of transition and/or,

    #2. Assist with meals, rides, etc. for school families in need.

    When the Co-Chairs receive information about a school family, they communicate the information with the administration in a confidential manner, recognizing the sensitivity of these situations.

    (Note: The time spent volunteering for Heart to Heart counts towards school volunteer hours.)

    If you know a student who has experienced the recent loss of a parent, sibling, or grandparent, please contact Mrs. Gore in the school office 203-255-0556.
