Through their SABER (Student Advocates of Blessed Edmund Rice) group, students at Bishop Hendricken High School continue to raise awareness of and advocate for veterans’ needs.
Throughout the 2017-2018 school year, members of Bishop Hendricken’s SABER club have continued their mission to bring awareness to the needs of veterans in Rhode Island. SABER has used social media to post statistics and stories about the needs of veterans on its Facebook page. Additionally, the group hosted its second-annual food drive this spring for Operation Stand Down RI, a group dedicated to helping veterans secure housing, employment and other assistance. The drive brought in items such as boxed and canned goods, pasta, and other staples for veterans in need. SABER continues to both raise awareness of and advocate for veterans’ needs in the state of Rhode Island as well as take direct action in supporting these needs.
