Dear Assumption Family,

I apologize for the missed and delayed newsletters. I have been spending my weekends volunteering for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Great Strides Walk-a-thons throughout the state.  The very early mornings and long days of hard work to help cure this life shortening disease have been extremely fulfilling, but also very exhausting.

This feeling of fulfillment is the rational behind our seventh grade religion students service projects. I want our students to experience this feeling first hand. You will be hearing about several collections and donation opportunities in the coming weeks. I ask that you participate in these projects as best you can.  The students have worked hard to plan and organize these projects, now we need your participation to make them a success.

We are currently collecting toiletries to help the homeless in our community served by Operation Hope.  Please see the flyer below for the specific items each class should donate.

Many Blessings,

Steven J. Santoli
