St. John’s is pleased to offer a series of articles through which faculty, staff and students share their Lasallian experiences. This month, math teacher Kwame Darko reflects on his experience at the Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies.
From Dec. 1-7, St. John's will be collecting toys for the children and families of Children's Hospital. All toys should be unwrapped and deposited under the Christmas tree inside the school's main entrance.
Children's accepts books, toys, clothing, gift cards, and other non-medical items for their Dr. Bear's Closet. These donations are given to patients and family members during their hospital visit to provide comfort, offer distractions and normalize the hospital setting. The toys make a big difference to the thousands of patients who come through their outpatient clinics, inpatient units, Emergency Department and Regional Outpatient Centers.
Help support St. John's by participating in the Men of St. John's annual fruit sale! This year we have continued our partnership with Florida Indian River Groves to provide you with the freshest citrus fruit available. Your fruit will be harvested the very same day it's shipped, ensuring you receive fruit that is just hours off the tree. Now that's fresh!
The Men of St. John's greatly appreciate your support. All of the profits from this sale go to benefit the students of SJC.
Pickup will be Saturday, Dec. 10, from 8:30-11:30 am. The pickup location will be in the main parking lot of Fernandez Stadium, behind the main campus just off Oregon Avenue.
