Students from Cardinal O’Hara High School in Springfield, PA collected non-perishable food items, toiletries, cleaning supplies and other basic essentials for victims of Hurricane Sandy during the week of November 12th. The students competed to see which grade could collect the most items. Their principal Dr. William McCusker promised a dress down day to the grade that won. All grades were so successful that it was too close to call. Everyone was promised a dress down day including the teachers who collected enough items to tie in the competition. Mr. Lou Osinski volunteered to move his classroom closer to the collection room 213 for the week to oversee the organization of the items. His physics class was on hand to help the New Jersey National Guard who picked up the items on November 20, 2012.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
