The recent Butte County fire has hit close to home for one of our Salesian parents who grew up and still has family living there. It is through her effort of helping those in her home town, that Paradise Strong Kids started. Paradise Strong Kids is currently collecting school supplies for students and teachers in Paradise who have lost everything. Our students in partnership with other local schools have stepped up to help those in need by donating school supplies and gift cards. Deluxe Foods and Foods of Aptos have drop off bins for donation collection. For more information, follow on Facebook.
Salesian hosted their annual Bishop Ryan Basketball Tournament the first weekend in December in the St. Francis High School gym. It was amazing to watch all the teams play, very spirited and animated games throughout the tournament. Bishop Sylvester Ryan took a moment in his busy schedule to come and cheer for the teams. Thank you to all that participated, it was a great event.
