The Giving Tree - Dalton, MA



For the second year in a row, The St Agnes Church and Academy in Dalton, MA sponsored a ‘Giving Tree’ to raise money for the medical needs of our children here in Yako.

This year, the project was completely run by the Student Council of St Agnes Academy and the children did an outstanding job!  The students cut out and laminated pictures with gift ideas on them and then tied them to two trees.  One tree was placed in the school and one was placed in the church.  The students promoted the Giving Tree in the school and the church and a notice was also put into the church bulletin.  The students and parents then selected cards from the tree and turned in their donations.

In total, the children raised more than $6,000!  These funds will go to meet the medical needs of medicine and even emergency hospital care when it is needed for our children.

Thank you Mr James Stankiewicz, Headmaster of St Agnes Academy for allowing your children to bless the children of Yako in this way!

Thank you Father Christopher Malatesta for allowing this opportunity for your generous congregation to bless us and our children here in Burkina!

And, thank you so much students of St Agnes Academy for all that you do in collecting cans to sponsor two of our children, in writing letters to our children, in sending gifts to our children, and in raising this huge amount of money for our medical program!

May the Lord richly bless you!
