Almsgiving was one focus during the Advent season at East and West Catholic. The students found ways to share with those in need and were encouraged to earn money for “Pennies for Patients,” which helps fund research for children suffering from cancer. West Catholic students participating in the project include, (back row, l-r) Graham Potts, Ryan Hoebelheinrich, Breiton Whitmire, Ryan Lammers, Madison Eickhoff; (middle) Gus Lammers, Joe Bowen, Reid Potts, Olivia Whitmire, Jake Hoebelheinrich; (front) Hank Dickes, Charlie Bowen, Hudson Whitmire and Nate Eickhoff. East Catholic students participating in the Almsgiving project include, (back) Jackson Klug; (middle) Izzy Rolfes, Hunter Kuchta, Michael Schroeder; (front) Connor Eickhoff, Rae Noecker and Bradly Lange. Together, the students earned nearly $175.
