Thanksgiving celebration successfully serves community
Saint Leo’s social work club, led by Dr. Veronika Ospina-Kammerer, received a special thanks from Sister Roberta Bailey, OSB, prioress of Holy Name Monastery, for collecting over $600 in donations for this year’s Thanksgiving celebration.
These funds helped provide a home-cooked, traditional meal for 225 people on Thanksgiving Day. In addition, more than 100 meals were delivered to the local domestic abuse shelter and to the homebound in our local community.
“This is just one of our ministries to enrich the lives of those who need our help,” said Sister Roberta. “Each gift received brings us closer to our mission to feed the hungers of God’s people.”
A special thanks to all Saint Leo community members who contributed to the event’s continued success.
