Reaching Out to Community Organizations
During the month of April, small groups of students went to the monthly meetings of local community organizations: St. Vincent de Paul, Rosary Society, Catholic Daughters, K of C and solicited funds for the cause. Each group prepared their own slide show and explained the plight of young people in other parts of the world. Each organization donated funds and the students realized that THEY can make a difference.
Middle School Students Encourage Elementary Students To Get Involved!
Our middle school students recently prepared short interactive presentations to explain this project to students in our elementary classes. They also shared ways the children in each of these grades could help, purchasing water droplets, ordering T-Shirts, dropping loose change in the “water” jar located in each classroom. Within one week, we raised over $250.00 from water droplet purchases and water jar collections! Let’s keep this up St. Chris!
