March 5, 2014 - As part of the Ash Wednesday service at St. Charles College, the students’ FIRST robotics team presented a cheque to Deacon Steve. The cheque in the amount of four hundred dollars will be used to support Chalice, a Catholic organization that supports children in Third World countries.

Every year, the school aims to financially support a handful of children in places like Haiti, Bolivia and Africa. Throughout the Lenten season, the students take up a collection in their homerooms. These students created a business plan that involved getting community sponsorship. Werner Scherzinger, who heads up the group says “we wanted to support children who have nothing and want very little.”
