The St. Louis School in Clarksville brought in more than $8,600 for a coalition of Howard County churches that aids homeless people, in the school's fifth annual fund-raiser.

The parochial school's 400 students solicited pledges for Churches Concerned for the Homeless from sponsors of students who solved math problems in a Math-a-thon.

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