I have built a house (or 6) in my time and it is no easy feat to do the work yourself. But it can be very rewarding to watch your progress day after day and for these girls the satisfaction must be immense.
WILMINGTON — As part of St. Thomas’s confirmation requirement, five Wilmington girls raised $3,600 for Food For The Poor to build a house in Nicaragua.
Ryan Bailey, Kaitlin LeBlanc, Julia McLaughlin, Sophia Novak, and Megan Santry, all sophomores at Wilmington High School and members of St. Thomas Church, began fundraising two years ago after a priest from Food For The Poor visited mass at St. Thomas.
