Notre Dame Fairfield Kicks of 26 Acts of Kindness Campaign

Day”, “Put a Smile on Someone’s Face Day” and “Be Kind to the Environment Day”.

At the same time, the ND community hosts a series of collections to benefit individuals in need. Items collected include: pet food, blankets and sleeping bags, socks, gently used coats, canned food and toiletries. Students will also take on a letter writing campaign to express gratitude to teachers, veterans and first responders.

With the help of students and staff, Principal Chris Cipriano initiated the program back in 2012. Cipriano commented, “The 26 Acts of Kindness campaign has become a core school tradition. Each year, our students, faculty and staff come together to spread kindness and positivity throughout the broader community area. Given all of the challenges facing our world, it is a joy to facilitate opportunities for young people to focus on helping others.”

The capstone of the 26 Acts of Kindness campaign is the annual Service Day event.

On November 18th, the entire student population, joined by faculty and parents, will travel across the state to complete a day of service at a wide range of nonprofits, churches, service organizations and educational institutions. In one day, the Notre Dame family will complete over 3,000 hours of service.

Notre Dame in Fairfield is a Catholic high school with a nearly 70-year tradition of academic and athletic excellence. The school is known for its tight-knit yet diverse community with students hailing from 32 cities and towns in CT and NY. Fueled by an intellectual curiosity and a strong sense of ethics, graduates leave armed for college and the world beyond.
