CSW HIGHLIGHT: Students and Fr. Jared Raise $1,100 Through Duct Tape Challenge
St. Joseph Parish School Principal Mrs. Carrie DePasquale draws the name of a student to see who gets to throw a whipped cream pie at Pastor Father Jared Orndorff. Fr. Jared agreed to be duct taped to the wall and take a whipped cream pie in the face to raise money for Louisiana Disaster Relief, one of Akron-based HALO Foundation's major campaigns.
To raise funds, St. Joseph students donated money to receive a casual day, purchase duct tape strips, and buy a chance to throw a pie. Students also donated to sign their names on a banner that will be given to the Flight 93 Memorial, another HALO Foundation campaign,when the 8th Grade students visit Washington D.C. in the spring. Student efforts raised $1,100. Each month, Saint Joseph Parish School partners with a local charity to raise funds for that charity's mission.
