St. Joseph Student Council officers (from left) Secretary Courtney Hughes, President Julie Diaz, Treasurer Peter Zaja, Vice President Vincent Dinon and School Spirit Officer Gabriel Rocha are all smiles with Principal Lawrence Manetti after hosting a Jean Day recently to raise funds for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Dinon is a Summit resident, and the other officers are from Garfield Ridge.
Children and staff donated a minimum of a dollar each to come to school dressed in jeans and a casual top. Some $300 was raised and sent to Catholic Charities in Trenton, New Jersey.
While the hurricane is long gone, the devastation and the need remain, exacerbated by the approach of winter. St. Joseph School encourages everyone to visit CatholicCharitiesTrenton.org to see examples of the ongoing need and make a donation.
