We extend a special thanks to St. Mary’s first graders in Marietta, Ohio, for having a book drive for the children of Eastern and Western Kentucky. The St. Mary’s students wanted to share with children who lost so much due to the recent natural disasters this past year. The drive collected more than 100 storybooks that will make for great Christmas gifts and more. The Sisters especially thank Robin Cleveland, SCNA and volunteer, for facilitating this project.

Sister Luke and Sister Anne received the books to distribute to the children.

    Congratulations, Robin, on such a wonderful project! I know that you and your granddaughter must be very proud of the first graders and their parents for their generosity at Christmas!
