Aug 28, 2017 - Armed with floor scrubbers, mops, gallons of soapy water, window cleaner and rolls of paper towels, members of One Jesuit Buffalo Alumni spent two days insuring that students at St. Monica’s school will have a bright campus when they begin classes in September.
Thirty volunteers from the Jesuit alumni group participated in the service project for the young womens’ campus of NativityMiguel Middle School of Buffalo located in St. Lawrence Parish. Dan Blake and John Tomczak coordinated the extensive cleaning plan with Nancy Langer, president of NativityMiguel, with a special focus on the more challenging jobs such as floor refinishing. Equipment and supplies were generously donated by supporters of the OJB project for the school.
One Jesuit Buffalo was formed in 2016 to unite the many alumni of Jesuit schools and their families living in the region. Their focus is to offer programs of Ignatian spiritual formation, community service projects and social events to foster unity and communication. The group held a two-day cleaning service project at NativityMiguel’s other campus, St. Augustine, last April during Easter recess. For more information checkOneJesuitBuffalo on Facebook.
