St. Louis school raises $6,771 to aid homeless

February 24, 1994

Students of St. Louis Catholic School in Clarksville raised $6,771 through their third annual Math-a-thon to benefit Churches Concerned for the Homeless.

The total was $73 more than the school raised last year. This year's collection was hampered by bad weather and was postponed for two days.

About 280 students -- 85 percent of the school's enrollment -- solicited pledges from sponsors for correctly solving 110 math problems.

Winning classes were treated to a pizza party in Glenelg, and students earning $30 or more received a Math-a-thon T-shirt.

Churches Concerned for the Homeless is a nonprofit organization of 30 churches in Howard County that provides transitional housing and counseling to help homeless people become self-sufficient.
