When Precious and Mary Ellen decided they wanted to make bookmarks to raise money for a charity they found the perfect cause, the Kathy Harding Library Fund. Every year this fund, a part of our Boards charity, The Angel Foundation for Learning, awards a grant to a needy school to buy books for their library.
Enlisting the help of their classmates the girls made adorable, little bookmarks that they sold for .25 cents apiece. They were able to raise $103.00!
In recognition of their efforts Mary Ellen and Precious were presented with certificates of appreciation by Marisa Celenza, the Executive Director of the Angel Foundation, her colleague, Jennifer Tocci, and Kathy Harding. The presentation was done in the library with the rest of their class.
We are truly blessed to have such caring, motivated students in our community exemplifying their Catholicity and contributing to the common good.
