WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- They're crafting, they're cooking, they're helping wherever they can.

Students at Waukesha Catholic Memorial High School participated in their annual Day of Service event on Wednesday, Nov. 24.

Each year, the school dedicates one day to helping organizations, including groups ranging from hospitals to military installations to groups like the Salvation Army.

The students made care packages for veterans, delivered sandwiches for the homeless, prepared Thanksgiving dinners for the community, and even rang the bell for the Salvation Army.

Although Catholic Memorial High School does this event every year, Sunday's tragedy at the Christmas parade puts this charity event into a new context.

"There's been a lot of woundedness. A lot of our kids were at the parade, a lot of near-misses, knowing people who were injured. And by being able to help and give back it starts the healing process," said Director of Campus Ministry Cindi Petre.

The Crusader Day of Service will help more than 15 organizations and provide more than 15 hours of service to those groups.
