Youngstown St. Joseph the Provider School
Early in March 2018 student’s in Mrs. Mazoros’ 2nd grade classroom read the story in their reader, “Mr. Tanen’s Tie Trouble”. In the story students learned a valuable life lesson, “the more you give, the more you get back”. The class decided to hold a contest in order to raise money for the Rescue Mission in Youngstown. This was the class’ Lenten almsgiving project. Students earned a ticket when they brought in loose change. Mrs. Mazoros pulled two tickets from the basket to see who won the filled Easter basket prizes. The winners are: Amiya Mendez and Kyle Johnson.
On March 29, 2018, Chrystal Eckman from the Rescue Mission visited the school to receive a check for $103.50, proceeds from students’ month-long contest. Ms. Eckman spoke to the students about the ways they were helping the poor in the Valley with their donation to the Rescue Mission.
