Chieftains Answer the Call

Before the rains stopped falling over Texas, Palma student Michael Perez ’18 contacted Campus Ministry and asked “what can we do?” They decided the Blessed Edmund Rice Society would raise money to send to Catholic Charities in Houston through a Free Dress Day. The amount of donation was left up to each donor, but any amount would buy free dress on Friday, Sept. 8th. Kevin Beach ’19, Jake Ottone ’18, Vince Flores ’18, Jaden Mendoza ’20, and Alex Thomas ’19 joined in the effort by creating posters to display around campus. The fund raiser officially began at 7:15 a.m. on Friday and before the first bell at 8:10, the group had raised $3,973. Because of the early success they decided to continue to raise funds until the end of the school day on Monday, Sept. 11th. There is still time for the Palma community to join the effort for our brothers and sisters in Texas.
