Lasallian Youth kicks off "Earning for Eritrea"

The San Miguel community, led by the Lasallian Youth group, kicked off its "Earning for Eritrea" campaign on Wednesday, an initiative to raise money for San Miguel's twinned school in Eritrea, Africa, during the Lenten season. 

Daily donations of extra coins, creative fundraising ideas, and friendly competition between classes has led to the school community raising more than $2000 the past two years, a goal the school hopes to surpass again this year. The approximate cost for sponsoring one child at Nativity School in Shinara Village, Eritrea, is $300, number that puts fundraising efforts into perspective for our boys.
