VMA at Emmaus--#OutreachDay2018

During what they coined #OutreachDay2018, students, faculty and staff of Villa Maria Academy (VMA) and Cathedral Preparatory High Schools volunteered for over 40 different locations around Erie County, including Emmaus Ministries.

Students were assigned to a group of about fifteen and accompanied by a staff or faculty member.
Those assigned to Emmaus contributed food – students from Villa made cookies from scratch and students from Prep, along with Fr. Mike DeMartines, made goulash. When the Villa students delivered cookies, their teacher Wendy Gunther commented that for some of the young women, this was their first time ever making cookies from scratch.

The students served at places ranging from the West Ridge Fire Department to Blended Spirits Horse Ranch in Fairview.
