Thank you so much to everyone who helped make our pulsera sale a success!  We more than tripled our original goal of $800 by raising $2,525! This money will go a long way in helping the Central American communities of the artists who created these works of art.
Your generosity is astounding, Mustangs!

Co-sponsored with the Catholic Life Issues Committee, and timed in celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd, we will discuss Pope Francis' On Care for Our Common Home - Laudato Si'.
