Maternity B.V.M. Catholic School in Northeast Philadelphia will hold its second annual walk-a-thon on Friday, April 20 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
The event, which aims to raise $10,000 for a new media center, will be led by members of the Philadelphia Police Department, as well as volunteers on motorcycles. Children in grades pre-K through eight will walk around the school’s campus, which is located at 9322 Old Bustleton Avenue in Philadelphia.
During the 2017 inaugural walk, the school raised over $9,000. Maternity B.V.M. has already begun purchasing items to go towards the updating of its library, as well as creating a new media center space. The school recently purchased new lights, a camera, and green screen for the school’s weekly news casts which can be viewed on the school website: https://maternitybvm.net/.
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.
