St. Vincent’s Teams Up with Local Restaurants to Raise Funds

| September 2, 2015 | 0 Comments

At the beginning of the summer, St. Vincent de Paul School partnered with local restaurants to raise much needed funds for the school. Parents and community members supported the school’s Just Lift A Fork fundraiser by dining at local Mission Hills restaurants – Brooklyn Girl Eatery, Lefty’s Chicago Pizzeria, and The Patio & The Front Porch.

Approximately $1,300 was raised from the event to purchase ActiVote and ActiveExpressions interactive student controllers for use with the Promethean interactive white boards. This equipment provides the opportunity for transformational use of technology in the classroom.

“We are thankful for the generous support from these local restaurants,” said Sister Kathleen Walsh, principal of St. Vincent de Paul School. “It was a great opportunity to raise much needed funds to benefit our students at St. Vincent de Paul School by providing enhanced use of technology.”
