Silent auction benefits student service projects

On Thursday, February 27, Saint Joseph’s College will hold a silent auction to raise funds to support the 23rd annual Spring Break Workfest program.

For more than two decades, teams of Saint Joseph’s students have spent their spring break volunteering in weeklong service projects. This year, students will serve communities in Martin and Vanceburg, Kentucky, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and New Rochelle, New York. Projects include renovating homes and assisting children, the homeless, elderly, and the disabled. A reflection of the mission and values of Saint Joseph’s College, these projects encourage students to dedicate their lives to providing community service.

The silent auction is a great way to support these students. In past years the auction has raised more than a third of the money needed to provide these valuable life lessons. Team sponsorship is also available.

The silent auction will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Mercy Hall at Saint Joseph’s campus in Standish. For information on donating auction items, attending the auction, or about sponsorship, contact Kathryn Cody at 893-7794 or
