Students and families of Bishop Shanahan High School in Downingtown recently donated $7,500 to victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. The money will be distributed to those in need through Catholic Relief Services.
Every Wednesday at Shanahan is “Charity Wednesday” in which students donate to various charities of their choice. The collections of Nov. 13 and 20 will aid the victims of the devastating typhoon, as will a collection taken up Nov. 27 during the school’s Thanksgiving Liturgy, which also included donations from Shanahan families.
Participating students shown above included (back row, from left) Nicole Moylett, Lindsay Dobbins, Hannah Davis, Kelly McGarry, Jessica Capista and Rachel Divas; (front row, from left) John Taylor, Matthew Skros, Eric Savini and Evan Veneziano.
