CCL Day of Service
Karen Eramo, St. Charles alumni mother, proud Hartley grad, Bishop Watterson mom, St. Francis DeSales aunt and Bishop Ready aunt, was instrumental in coordinating the “2020 CCL Day of Service.” Created to promote friendship and service among the students at the five Central Ohio Catholic high schools, the 8th annual day of service was held on Monday, February 17th. Volunteers partnered with LifeCare Alliance to deliver meals throughout Central Ohio.
Here is the message Mrs. Eramo shared with St. Charles coordinators and administrators:
“Dear Mr Lower, Dr Fagge, Mrs Leukart and Mr Warner,
Thank you for sharing your fabulous young men. They demonstrated compassion, empathy and maturity during their interactions with other volunteers and clients. This year we had 215 volunteers representing all five Catholic High Schools. The students delivered meals to over 500 clients, made 200 meals for tomorrow and assisted in the pet meal program. Each of the students gave 4 hours of community service. JR Racik, John Levy, Blake Roller, Adam Fellows and John Bintcher gave a total of 6 hours in preparation of the event and meal delivery today. They assisted in the set up for the event and registration of all the other high schools. A special thank you to Gianni Eramo for serving as student representative. HIs responsibilities including picking up and delivering posters and t-shirts throughout Columbus. He and JR Racik paired up with alumni mother Banu DiNapoli to stay longer today to make sure an additional 17 clients received their meal delivery today. We truly appreciate your support and look forward to working together in 2021. “
Here’s another SC Mom/parent volunteers sharing her praise for the young men from St. Charles:
“Good Evening Mr. Paccioretti,
I had the pleasure of driving 4 St. Charles Freshmen- my son George Mosholder and Ethan Bell, Max Colucy, and Victor O’Brien around the west side of Columbus to deliver 20 meals to those in need. And, wanted to let you (and their parents) know how proud I was of how these men treated the mission at hand and treated all they encountered with dignity and respect. I waited in the car while the boys read the instructions for each delivery and delivered the meals to the door – not simply handing the meal and leaving, but talking to the residents- many came out to the car and personally thanked me for “raising such thoughtful young men.”
This service project may be thought of “as not a big deal” by our students, but their presence and grace will be remembered by those clients always. The boys (all being members of the St. Charles Freshmen/JV teams) even played a pick-up game with boys playing in the street.
Thank you for giving our boys this wonderful opportunity to serve.
Sincerely, Carol Mosholder”
Thank YOU, Karen and Carol!!!!
