Shattuck-St. Mary’s School celebrated Founder’s Day on Friday, September 23 by welcoming Faribault Mayor John Jasinski, who spoke on the importance of public service. Heeding that powerful message; students, faculty, and staff members followed the assembly by boarding buses to more than 30 area organizations as part of SSM’s seventh-annual Hands Across Faribault Day.
More than 500 SSM community members served Faribault in a variety of ways, including help with sandbagging at the Faribault Public Works facility and the American Legion, assisting at several area public schools, packaging food for in-need families, sorting items at Goodwill and the Salvation Army store, painting, cleaning, and beautifying at a number of local non-profit organizations, musical performances at area senior communities, and much more.
A special thanks to Fr. Henry Doyle for organizing the Hands Across Faribault service opportunities.
