All Schools Week of Giving and The Joni Jensen Dinner

Date:  Monday, November 12, 2018 Byline:  Christopher Watkins

 

The Joni Jensen dinner last Friday was a huge success, and I am always inspired by how our community comes together each year to offer a warm and meaningful welcome to so many refugees.  Local refugees in connection with The International Rescue Committee (The IRC) are invited to dinner on campus at Waterford which is hosted by students, parents, faculty and staff. The IRC was founded by Albert Einstein and responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. 

Spring Break in India

During Spring Break, fourteen Waterford juniors and seniors and three faculty members flew to Kolkata, India to take part in service with two different organizations.  The majority of the service days were spent working with the Missionaries of Charity organization (founded by Mother Teresa) at two different residences for adults and children with profound mental and physical disabilities.  The group also spent time at a girls’ home established to take in girls who were orphaned or cast off from their families.
