FORT ATKINSON — St. Joseph School is donating $200 to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School Region of Staten Island, N.Y., to help with the destruction caused by Super Storm Sandy. The donation has been made from the funds raised during the school’s second annual Rake-A-Thon, which was held on Friday, Nov. 2. The blessings and prayers from the students and faculty at St. Joseph School go out to all the schools, families, homes, and businesses that were struck by Sandy.

St. Joseph School is also participating in a parish-wide food drive. People are invited to send non-perishable goods to St. Joseph School. Food will be collected in the classrooms, the school office, and in the parish’s gathering space.

On Friday, Dec. 21, starting around 2 p.m., members of the parish will load the food and literally “Stuff the Trucks” in the school parking lot, which will then take them to the Fort Atkinson Food Pantry.

Last year, St. Joseph “stuffed” three trucks and has set the ambitious goal of filling four trucks for 2012.
