MAYOR COMMENDS ST. JOSEPH STUDENTS FOR EFFORT
Today, Mayor James J. Fiorentini visited with the students of St. Joseph’s School to commend them on their efforts in help our service men and women in Iraq as well as collecting school supplies for Iraqi school children.
The Mayor presented them with his own donation which will enable the students to finally ship overseas the 30 boxes they prepared.
Katie Hefferan, a teacher at St. Joseph’s, had been contacted by her boyfriend, Staff Sergeant Robert Mann who is serving in the army in Iraq. He told her of the difficulty the Iraqi children are experiencing and of their lack of school supplies. Ms. Hefferan coordinated the effort with other faculty, students and their families to send these much needed school materials to Iraq.
