Crusader Families

As always, our St. Joseph family comes together to help each in difficult times. For some of our families, this is a very difficult time. We have about 10 families who had flooding in their homes and now must face the daunting task of clean-up and repair. If you are able, we ask that you consider donating your time or a gift card. Several families are in need of muscle power to empty their homes so they can begin the repairs. If you are able to give your time, please call the school and we will connect you with one of our families. If you would like to make a donation to help our families with clean up and replacing their home items and clothing, please consider purchasing a visa card to help with hotel costs, WalMart, Target, Lowes, etc. You may drop them off to Mr. Tommy through carpool in the morning or bring them to the office. We appreciate everything you have to offer. Most of all, we ask for your continued prayers for strength and perseverance for our families as they repair their homes and lives.
