35th Annual Fashion Show Fundraiser Event – December 8, 2018

As St. Gerard Campus prepares to welcome the child Jesus this holiday season, they also are preparing for their annual Fashion Show fundraiser.  In keeping with their mission to welcome the child it is important to note St. Gerard Campus welcomes children of the students and those who find out they are pregnant at St. Gerard's Pregnancy Center throughout the year. Donations from the community are crucial to funding the services provided to the pregnant and new moms that rely on St. Gerard for services and their education and/or housing in the dormitory.

Somewhat like Joseph and Mary looking for shelter for the birth of Jesus.  The young ladies who use St. Gerard's services are looking for shelter from the effects of a world that looks harshly and with distain at the situation these young ladies find themselves. St. Gerard is a place where pro-life efforts are extolled, and all efforts are made to support this underserved segment of society.

Services include a high school where education is emphasized to help elevate them to realize the need for knowledge and training to succeed after they leave St. Gerard.  About 15% of the young ladies are homeless, or have no family members that can provide housing, and for them St. Gerard provides a residence where they can live and learn with the support of volunteers, teachers and staff. There is an on-site Day Care where their children are cared for while they are in classes; the Day Care also provides some early childhood education to assist these young mothers on the proper care and nutrition their babies. 

St. Gerard also provides services to the community-at-large with Community Outreach and the Pregnancy Center.  Community Outreach services include providing those in need with diapers, formulae and other baby needs at no cost; outreach services also include resource and referral to other community based agencies that provide similar or ancillary services for young moms, their children and families in need. The Pregnancy Center provides free pregnancy tests and sonograms with all efforts to bring a new life into the world and ward-off abortions.  There are also adoption services provided. These services are provided within an emotionally supportive environment where spirituality is the basis for all actions and decisions.  Discipline is exerted with tough love, and motivation is fostered by recognition of the good outcomes of the young ladies as they go about their day at St. Gerard 

All this would not be possible without your donations, and the annual Fashion Show Fundraiser is an important event to raise the funds necessary to continue to provide St. Gerard's services. You are encouraged to attend the Fashion Show which is being held at the Renaissance Room at the World Golf Village on December 8. There will be a silent auction, door prizes and a raffle for $5,000. Please see enclosed for complete details. Your donations will welcome the child – any child - over and over again at St. Gerard Campus.

All the services provided by St Gerard require the support and donations from the local community. There are some grants, but the bulk of all the expenses are paid by individual donations from local organizations or individuals. St. Gerard always needs money for its basic overhead expenses like school lunches, utilities, insurance, rent, etc. Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to support the programs at St. Gerard Campus.  You can also make donations now through AmazonSmile whenever you order anything through Amazon a portion is donated to St. Gerard's account.

A New Step for St. Gerard Students

The Science Lab is complete and up and running, thanks to the Ward Family Foundation and the Meninak Club of Jacksonville. Fully equipped, excited St. Gerard students took their seats in September in the new lab for the lab requirements in both Physics and Biology. The young ladies were very enthusiastic about getting the hands-on experience that will enhance their school experience and help them get into many of the medical fields these students want after graduation. Next semester they are looking forward to taking chemistry and Earth Science.

Volunteers Needed

Our Front Desk and Community Outreach Program needs volunteers with kind hearts and compassion. Help give out food, adult and baby clothing, diapers, baby necessities and resources to the less fortunate. Our Thrift Store is also looking for volunteers.

St. Gerard is asking help from the community in restocking the nursery, the pantry and replenishing used household items in the dormitory. We are in desperate need of three new or gently used travel portacribs for our nursery! We need Graco Travel Lite Portable Cribs (Jacqueline or Notting Hill styles) or Graco Travel Lite Portable Mini Playard.

Benefactors

We are forever grateful to the companies and corporations that have helped St. Gerard Campus keep our mission alive. In addition, we cannot forget the many donors that also believe in our little miracle to save God's angels….the unborn child. We must take a moment to send our heartfelt thanks to those that believe. The constant flow of donations, big and small, mean so very much in our day-to-day operations.

St. Gerard is proud to announce that, not only did we receive a grant from the Meninak Club of Jacksonville to build a Science Lab, but we also received a grant from the Ward Family Foundation to furnish all the equipment, supplies, desks and computer to outfit the lab and make it fully operational for our students.   We are so grateful.
