St. Andrew students raise funds for bench

August 30, 2019
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

St. Andrew Catholic School students began the school year by helping other students in their community. On the first Friday of the new school year, students participated in a dress out day to benefit the Cape Coral Safe Zone Park Bench Project, sponsored through the Rotary Foundation. As an extension of the Rotary Club, St. Andrew School hosts a RotaKids club. Student mentors and club advisors decided this project was a perfect way to assist the community. This one-day collection of donations was enough to sponsor a bench at the corner of the St. Andrew Catholic Church property. On Friday, Aug. 23, St. Andrew RotaKids, members of the Cape Coral Rotary Club and other community leaders assembled for a special dedication of the bench. After placing balloons on the bench, students joined hands in prayer and sang "Amazing Grace." A plaque now adorns the bench thanking the RotaKids for their support of the Safe Zone Bench Project, a community wide project that began in 2019 to help keep students safe at their bus stops.
