St. Raphael Catholic School Holds Annual Rake-A-Thon Event
St. Raphael Catholic School in Crystal held its 14th annual Rake-A-Thon fundraising event Saturday morning. About 80 students, parents and teachers gathered to rake leaves for ten families in the area who otherwise couldn’t do the task on their own.
“We love our school, and I love the service project,” said Geri Cox, a Rake-A-Thon organizer. “I think it’s a great way to see our Catholic faith in action, helping our neighbors and those in need of assistance.”
As part of the event, St. Raphael asked members of the community to pledge money for their school. Organizers hoped to raise $12,000 this year.
