Great Kids, Great Families

"BOOKS FOR KIDS"

One of our service projects during Catholic Schools Week was a book collection for needy children in the Milwaukee area. We were AMAZED by the hundreds of gently used books that were donated by our school families! There was a wonderful variety of books from K4 - Junior High levels.

The teachers sorted the books by reading level and Mr. Paul delivered them to the "Next Door Foundation" on N. 29th Street in Milwaukee. This group serves about 500 children daily and provides each child in the Head Start and Charter School Program two books per week from October through May. They need 25,000 books to distribute annually and our donation was greatly appreciated.

Because of the thoughtfulness and generosity, more Milwaukee children now have books of their own.

THANKS TO ALL FAMILIES WHO PARTICIPATED!
