The eighth grade class at St. Mary School, Spokane Valley, organized a service project to help the tsunami victims in Southeast Asia. The project began with student research on various relief organizations and moved to what items were needed for victim relief. Teams of students went to each lower grade classroom, where the eighth graders shared their research and collected money that students brought. During this weeklong effort they collected $1,097.05, which was sent to Catholic Relief Services. The children presented their class money jars at the weekly school Mass Jan. 13.

At Austen Manor in Clarkston, a Catholic Charities-sponsored housing development, area firemen dropped by recently to take the residents’ blood pressure. The residents lined up to see the firemen as word went around they had arrived. They joked and had fun with the residents – lots of laughs at the property for the time they were there. They also tested the smoke alarms. (IR photo from Catholic Charities)
