Thank you Kohl's Associates in Action!!
For the fourth straight year, Kohl's Associates in Action have volunteered at Sacred Heart of Jesus School in our Mulch Mania event. Over these four years, the school has been awarded more than $4000 in grants to non-profit groups for community improvement. This year we received the Earth Day Grant and earned $1500 by cleaning up leaves and debris and conserving resources by spreading mulch around the school grounds. We thank the the Kohl's employees, school families, parishioners, students, and all volunteers who helped spread mulch last Saturday, April 25! The school grounds look beautiful!

There was $1,900,000 available for distribution and we were fortunate enough to secure a $9,000 grant. This money will be used to purchase iPads for our kindergarten through 3rd grade classes.
