St. Charles College Supports Haitian Relief

The staff and students at St. Charles College recognize the importance of continuing to raise funds for the devestated country of Haiti. While the school’s mission collection is ongoing daily, the students decided they wanted to do something extra to add to their mission donations. A group that is new to the school this year – P3 – which stands for People, Peace, Power – is a student run club that works towards social justice and peaceful relationships within the school and community. It incorporates the already established E.S.P. group at St. Charles College which is the Empowering Student Partnerships. These students decided to have t-shirts made to sell to boost their fundraising efforts. The t-shirts are being sold for $10 and there are only a few left as the sales have been a huge success. Including the mission collections, the students and staff have collected over $3000 and their donation will go to Haitian relief through Chalice which is a Catholic Aid organization that is sponsored by the Bishops. Patty Mardero, principal of the school felt that it was a real team effort by the entire school and was very pleased and proud of their accomplishment.
