Kids helping Kids - Parish Youth Group goes all out to raise funds and awareness for Special Strides
We are so proud of our very colorful group! It all started back in early January with a letter writing campaign to friends and family along with other fundraising activities.
In the end, Teen BLAST raised over $7,000 for Special Strides, a Monroe based charity which benefits physically challenged children through the magic of animal therapy. Over $130,000 was raised in all.
Thank you for your support!
