Through a variety of activities, the Service club has raised funds and is just $967 away from the $12,000 goal. They are working hard to finish before graduation so that Maggie Urban, who was instrumental in bringing the project to the Service Club, can see its completion before graduating in May. Please prayerfully consider a gift toward this worthwhile project that will bring clean water to an entire village. Donations can be made online through the Saint Joe’s Service Club page on the THIRST Project website. Thank you!
The Centre Daily Times ran its preview of Centre County baseball, highlighting Saint Joe’s among other local teams. Check it out.
The baseball team will take on Philipsburg-Osceola at Medlar Field on May 5th. The game will follow the Penn State Baseball game vs. Michigan State. The Penn State game begins at 2pm, and anyone who purchases a ticket (at a reduced cost, $5/adults and $3/youth under 12) can stay for our game! The acapella choir will perform the national anthem as well. This will be an amazing community event, we would love to see everyone come out and support the school! Please email Chad Walsh for details.
Three years ago, students in the Service Club took on an ambitious project to raise $12,000 to build a well in a village in Swaziland. The initiative is part of the THIRST Project and its commitment to give the ENTIRE NATION of Swaziland safe, clean drinking water by 2022. According to Service Club advisor and Saint Joe’s faculty member Shelly Mato, one well provides clean, safe, reliable water for an entire village for up to 40 years.
