Madisynn and Emileigh Saldana: Two Christmas Angels

“This year, the students at Sts. Simon & Jude School were asked to do extra chores around the house to earn one dollar that could be donated to St. Vincent de Paul. My sister and I decided that we wanted to do something special for our Advent project. Instead of doing chores that took a long time for just one dollar for St. Vincent de Paul, we decided to do a hot chocolate stand. Our street decorates a lot for Christmas, and we have many people drive their cars or walk through our street to look at all the lights. We knew we had a good chance to raise a lot of money in a quicker amount of time to help more people. After only two hours we raised $99. My brother donated the extra dollar so we could turn in $100. We had a fun night and we were able to help out others who need it.”
