It’s always wonderful to see the community come together in such a big way for Cattaraugus Gives Day. And that’s not just for us. Nearly 100 community organizations collectively netted $272,000 in charitable donations this year. That generosity builds parks, provides meals and health resources, advocates for people in need, and so much more.
For Walsh/STCS, the outpouring of support this year (10th place in all of Cattaraugus County) directly supports our students. But our work has only begun. We’ve yet to reach our $40,000 goal to support our International Baccalaureate Programme. Thanks in part to IB, the Class of 2022 continued an annual trend here by collectively earning more than $2.5 million in college scholarships. Our senior classes have for years proven the long-term IB benefits: BIG scholarships for BIG minds and BIG futures.
And we intend on keeping it going!
Here’s How You Can Help Build on our Cattaraugus Gives Success
And that’s it!
We are so grateful for the entire Walsh/STCS family. Students here learn two of the most valuable life lessons: 1.) What it means to be part of something bigger than themselves, and 2.) How to sacrifice for something they love.
The Spirit of Giving is the core of our faith-based mission — and not just around the Holidays. Our families and community supporters embody this mission every day. So thank you for being you.
Have a blessed Holiday Season!
