St. Dorothy's Chuch and School
St. Dorothy’s Church and School is one of our newest school partners currently participating in our Recycling Fundraising Program. Father Miller wanted to start a recycling program for his school while also motivating parishioners and local residents to get into the habit of recycling unwanted clothes, shoes, books and other items.By hosting a Gaia collection bin on the school grounds St. Dorothy is able to raise money from the amount of clothes, shoes, books, toys and other items that they collect. The funds that St. Dorothy raises will be used to support a school program.
