Summer wrap up
This past summer was full of good news and achievements here at Sacred Heart Center. With school out, many children had a safe place to learn and play at our summer camp. When the school year neared, with the help of United Way and St. Catherine’s School we were able to donate backpacks and school supplies to children in need. We also had numerous students who successfully completed their GED high school equivalency studies.
With cooler weather finally approaching, we’re now looking forward to a busy fall.
Ways to Help
Stop by to donate a stuffed animal. These will be a great gift for children that come to the Center for the Mexican Consulate’s visit.
Volunteer to help us prepare for our annual fundraising breakfast on Oct 21.
