Thank you to the whole St. John-St. Paul Collaborative Community for your amazing support of NPH and the pequeños during their recent visit! We are excited to announce that our Collaborative sponsored 105 children and donated over $14,000 to NPH. A special thank you to the families of our collaborative who opened their homes to host the students and their chaperones: the Fantozzi, Gutierrez, Jones, Kehoe, Ronco/Rhind and Sullivan families. Thank you to all volunteers who helped at the sponsorship tables. Thank you to the DelVecchio family for opening their home to the whole group for a celebration at the end of the visit and to Annas Taqueria for generously donating the food.
