New Playground from Working for Worcester!

We are so pleased and excited to announce that St. Mary’s Schools received an early Christmas gift as we are the recipient of a grant for a new playground from Working for Worcester. The grant will be used to create a space in the lot to the left of the school complete with swings, slides and other playground equipment within the existing school yard. Working for Worcester is centrally organized by Students Helping Children Across Borders (SHCAB) but in development and implementation, the project is a city-wide partnership of student organizations, local businesses, academic institutions, city government and community groups. On Saturday, April 29, 2017 teams of workers representing each of the above constituencies will spend the day at the nineteen chosen sites, including St. Mary’s, starting and completing each approved project.
We know that we are blessed and so grateful for the generosity of Working for Worcester. We know this will make a difference in the lives of our students for years to come.
