Daisy Days at OLM

Our Wednesday Mission Collections will provide funds for Children's Hospital, specifically the department where Baby Elizabeth was treated. Rita Conroy, grandmother of Meg Emmerling in 7th grade, is helping me with this. When children make a donation, they write their name on a daisy and please hang it outside your room. Renee will be putting the daisies your mailboxes. A Wawa coupon also comes with the donation.
