We are so happy to report that St. Joseph’s Parish collected $44,921.29 for the Smiles for Scott Foundation, which assists pediatric oncology patients and their families with expenses and needs associated with treatment.  We are also touched to report that, as specified by the donor, $25,000.00 was given in support of children receiving cancer treatment in Ukraine.  Thank you all so very much.

We received a beautiful thank you note from Scott’s mother Debbie Loeb, who wrote:

“Dear Anna, 
From the bottom of my heart, and all of us at Smiles for Scott, I would like to thank you and all of the amazing people at St. Joseph’s Parish for choosing Smiles for Scott as the foundation for your Lenten Project 2022.  It is quite an honor to be recognized and chosen.

It was truly a privilege for me to speak at your beautiful church.  Although it was a bit nerve wracking for me, you made it easier and comfortable.  The parishioners are so warm and welcoming.  They made me feel comfortable.  Their kind loving words when we got to meet some of them at the end truly touched my heart.  As we had said – everyone has a story you know nothing about.

With love and continued thanks!
