The Following was Submitted by Malden Catholic high School:
This summer, Malden Catholic students, parents and faculty volunteered to assist the Habitat for Humanity organization. Joe Valente, ‘15 organized the effort. The group worked at Blue Hills Place in Dorchester, MA.
Malden Catholic students who participated in the project included:
Jack Stockless - Malden
Joe Valente- Melrose
Jonathan Havey- Melrose
Billy Scola- Malden
Walter Macaulay- Wakefield
Matt Curran- Wakefield
Paul O’Callaghan - Malden
Dylan Bagley- Melrose
Alex Massa - Peabody
NicoDeFlorio - Saugus
James Donlan - Medford
Chris Sparages – Saugus
Also volunteering were Mrs. Nikki O’Callaghan (mother of three MC students) and members of the Malden Catholic Faculty, Mr. Peter Ghiloni, Mr. Peter Francini, and Mr. Jeff Smith.
“This was our inaugural effort with Habitat for Humanity. We hope this will be an ongoing organization for Malden Catholic,” states Peter Ghiloni, Chairperson of Theology at MC.
The mission of Habitat for Humanity is so comparable to the mission of Malden Catholic High School that a collaborated effort was an outstanding partnership. Giving back to the community and helping those less fortunate is an aim of both organizations.
