Peacekeepers for St. Jude
Huber Peacekeepers Support St. Jude
The Peacekeeper's Club at Huber Street School is asking for families to contribute their used or old  greeting cards to a wonderful cause. At St. Jude's Ranch for Children, various participants recycle greeting cards of any occasion and re-create new ones for any holiday or event.  All we need is the cover of the card.

These recycled cards are then sold to assist with raising money to help support different programs of service for abused, neglected, and homeless children.  Please send donations to your child’s homeroom teacher. Any questions, please contact Peacekeeper’s Club advisors Mr. A. Bonin at abonin@sboe.us or Mrs. Fitzpatrick at gfitzpatrick@sboe.us.
