The Sisters of St. Joseph call everyone to serve the dear neighbor without distinction. In 2008, Fontbonne University began an annual day of service at various locations in the St. Louis area. Fontbonne Day was first held on May 1st to emphasize the feast of St. Joseph. However, changes in the academic calendar have resulted in a loss of this religious connection. Fontbonne Day is now held each April to avoid a conflict with finals. This water bottle was provided to the student, faculty, and staff volunteers in 2018 for the 10th Annual Fontbonne Day in gratitude for their service.
