Yesterday afternoon the seminary received a wonderful thank you email from the advancement director of St James the Greater Catholic school on Tamm Avenue in St. Louis.The 7th grade got the desks, here is part of the note.
"They were so excited to receive this wonderful gift! They were a little bit jealous, because the eighth grade class got new desks this year. The 7th graders thought they would have to wait another year before they got something new.
We received 20 desks from your campus and we will put them all to use in the 7th grade. They are such an improvement over what the students were using previously. Even though the desks are 'from the 70's', they cleaned up beautifully and will provide years or service for our school. We couldn't be more grateful.
