The Mother Daughter Mass and Breakfast was beautiful this morning. While the moms and daughters enjoyed mass, our volunteer Dads were busy cooking and setting up for the ladies to enjoy breakfast. Thanks to all for coming and for those who made it possible. A special thank you to the dads for your support!
Our students had an eye-opening experience and did a wonderful job at the San Jose Urban Plunge last week! From visiting with the Homeless Response Team at City Hall to serving at The Window at the Cathedral Basilica downtown, to helping paint the walls at Grace Baptist Church, our students embraced it all with open minds and loving hearts.
Great work and thank you for participating:
Pres Senior, Natalie Launder, has been volunteering her photography skills at Help One Child in Los Altos. They provide services to at risk children in the foster care system. Natalie has taken family portraits, photos at fundraising events and summer camp programs. Her photos were on display at their annual gala to provide donors more insight into the families being supported, she also worked the event to capture donors and the Board of Trustees. It has been an eye opening experience watching these families either be reunited or seeing foster children go to new, loving homes.
Thank you, Natalie, for sharing your talents with those in need. Not Words, But Deeds!
