February 10th was joy filled day. Why? We recieved a donation of $55.00 from two young girls. They wrote:
"Dear St. Anthony School,
my friend (name) and I would like to make a donation so all the children in this town can get a good education."
There is name, we don't want to publish without their permission. Their profound thoughtfulness, what they learned, that is what make difference in our family and community. It deeply touched me. Did this story touched you?
Please join with these two and many others in the movement to help save St. Anthony School. The people of the Park Falls and surrounding areas and beyond are coming together to “give back” to the institution that they, their parents and grandparents have depended on and that has formed so many of our local leaders.
An achievable goal of 1,000 pledges of $1,000 for the next three years will allow the school to have a strong endowment fund and ensure that the school will be around for a long, long time. No gift is too small or too big. When you support St. Anthony School, you are supporting our community, and proclaiming how much you value education.
