As part of St. Jude School's Parish Christmas service project and in conjunction with the Parish Twinning Program of America, students raised money for their sister parishes in Gros-Morne, Haiti.
Organizers said, "St. Jude School is proud to share how very generous our families and students are and how these kindnesses will help our friends in Haiti, who continue to struggle more than two years after a devastating tornado."
- Kindergarten parents sponsored their children in a special homework project to do extra chores at home. As a result of their efforts they will be buying a goat and feeding a child for a year and a half!
- First and second grade families provided a spectacular response to the request to hold a bake sale and students raised money to buy two hens, two goats and will help feed a child for part of a year.
- Third grade students were sponsored to provide service labor – cleaning up and sweeping gravel back on the playground. They will be buying five hens and five goats.
- Fourth grade conducted their annual two-day yard sale and raised money to buy six hens, two goats and two piglets. Fourth grade also presented our pastor, Fr. Charlie, with $200 to help parish families in need.
- By completing chores for family and neighbors, fifth grade students raised money to feed two children for a year and buy a goat. Jonah King, on his own, raised $130 helping an elderly neighbor rake leaves and donating $30 of his own money.
- 6C held a fundraiser to buy a goat and a hen.
