Charitable Drives

Inspired by the Catholic Church’s “preferential option for the poor,” the Christian Service Department, in partnership with Campus Ministry, coordinates giving drives throughout the year that assist underserved members of our larger community. Through programs like canned food drives, the Christmas Drive, and the Lenten We Create Change project the Cristo Rey community directly impacts the lives of hundreds of marginalized people in the greater San Jose area, as well as around the world. These programs are complemented by social justice education to empower students to continue making a difference in the lives of others.
