St. Joseph Immaculate Heart of Mary Student Council recently sponsored two school spirit days — Crazy Hat Day and Color Day.
In order to participate, students and staff were required to make at least a 50-cent donation for each activity to the Second Harvest Food Bank. The school was able to raise $407. Crazy hats were made at home and then worn at school. On Color Day, students wore their class color with school uniforms. Students showed true school spirit by incorporating academics, charity and fun into the school days.
Miriam Klein, grant officer for Second Harvest Food Bank, came to St. Joseph Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Austintown March 14 and gave a short presentation about the food bank. She thanked the students for their donation and told them their $407 turned into more than $6,000 worth of food.
