Kids helping Kids in Capreol


December 16, 2011 - It has been said that the cornerstone of a true community is the way in which it reaches out to its’ less fortunate in times of need. On December 8th 2011, students from St. Mary Catholic School walked to the local post office and sang Christmas carols in hopes they’d receive monetary donations for children in our community who are in need.

The students and staff began singing and their angelic voices did not go unnoticed. In fact, in one visit to the post office, the students collected a substantial amount of money that will be used to create baskets to support children who are in need in Capreol.

“These are the kind of activities that bring our faith to life,” said Principal Sherry Bortolotti. “This kind of service seems to just spring seamlessly from our students and staff and it is an essential part of our mission as Catholics.”

Teacher Jennifer Bruneau said, “The students recognize that it is their beautiful singing that draws the crowds and motivates people to give generously. We are so thankful to the people of Capreol. This community has a lot of heart and people always pull together for each other when they need to the most.

School Council Chair Erin Gauvreau, Ms. Waern and Ms. Bruneau decorated a Christmas tree with beautiful ornaments tagged with our school name. The tree stands in the post office and community members have been bringing donations of hats, shoes and socks and placing them under the tree. Our school volunteer Cathy Mohn plans to uses these generous contributions as part of the baskets she will assemble and deliver before the holidays.

The staff and students plan to carol two more times in support of Capreol’s less fortunate this Christmas
