In January, I attended the JGS Priests’ Shootout. Benjamin wasn’t feeling well and couldn’t go, but I wanted to make sure the school knew how thankful we were. This was such an awesome event for such a great cause, The Smiles Park. Benjamin really had an impact on the kids the week before, and it was evident by how they all showed support for the playground.
The school asked for donations for the playground to attend the game, and after the totals were in, JGS raised $1,400!! This far exceeded my expectation, but I wasn’t surprised with such a generous community.
This school, church, and community have been so wonderful to our family. We are so thankful for the sweet messages, food, flowers, prayers, and the continued support for the Smiles Park. The Smiles Park has been one of Benjamin’s Beautiful Distractions for me.
