The total raised includes more than $600 sent directly to St. Rose Parish and School in Belmar, N.J., after the College closed for the holidays on December 20, two days following the official end to the campaign.
Kathleen Nace, SSJ ’88 (mathematics), principal of St. Rose and point person on this effort, was overwhelmed with the CHC alumni response. Read more >>
