Nativity of Mary School believes strongly in service to the community. Students participate in numerous service projects throughout the year including:
- Heifer Project International - students and parishioners have taken up collections during Lent since 1998. Money raised has purchased over 16 Arks of animals!
- Middle School help out whenever needed around the school - setting up tables, recess equipment, flag, announcements, signs
- Our Dear Lord Shut Ins - Middle School students take up a collection of travel size toiletries and candy to fill cans they have decorated to take to inner-city nursing homes. Students deliver their gifts, sing Christmas carols and visit with residents in December each year.
- Buddy programs - older students have buddies in the younger classrooms who they take to Mass during the week and help on projects in the classroom when needed.
Nativity Nighthawks have a long history of giving back to their communities and helping those less fortunate.
