Seniors Join Volunteers at St. Michael's Haven

Seniors volunteering

Two of our DeSales seniors, Irish Clark and Juston Kimball, along with Mrs. Hilbert and Mrs. Richard joined other volunteers to help prepare the ground for a garden at St. Michael’s Haven. St. Michael’s Haven is the newly constructed Veterans’ Home on the campus near the Veterans’ Hospital and is operated under the auspices of Catholic Charities.  On Saturday morning, October 21, a crew of volunteers cleared sod and placed pavers to create separated beds for the garden that will be planted in the spring. In September,  Mrs. Richard and Father Smedley met with Mara Polumbo of Catholic Charities to establish an ongoing relationship with St. Michael’s Haven with the specific intention of having DeSales seniors , and possibly other students, serve as stewards of the garden. If you anyone is interested in partnering with our students on this project, please contact Mrs. Richard at DeSales.
