Faculty & Staff Service Project for St. Johns Housing Partnership
More than 20 Jacksonville Country Day School faculty and staff members teamed up on a service project for St. Johns Housing Partnership (SJHP). The volunteers rebuilt a porch, built a wooden ramp, installed new flooring, hauled trash, and did yard work as part of the project.
The work took place at the home of Curly Bill Whitecloud in St. Augustine on Saturday, April 29. Mr. Whitecloud is a 91-year-old World War II veteran who lost a hand in the war.
“Thank you so much for helping out this WWII veteran!” SJHP thanked the school volunteers on Facebook for their help.
“I am so proud of these hardworking people,” head of school Pat Walker, who took part in the project, said. “It was a sunny, fun, collaborative time, one that made a big difference for the veteran,” director of education Ruthanne Stabler added.
