As a long-time community partner of St. John of God Community Services, D.J. Wagner Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. has made significant contributions to the Early Intervention program through their annual charity golf outing. Each year, D.J. Wagner Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc, holds the annual event, which features a golf tournament, breakfast, lunch and raffles. Leading up to the event, businesses have the opportunity to sponsor selected holes during the tournament. Last September, the event was able to raise $35,450 for the agency’s Early Intervention program. In the last three years, D.J. Wagner Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. has been able to raise over $100,000 in support of the program.
Knights of Columbus
Throughout the years, the Knights of Columbus councils have continuously remained a presence at St. John of God Community Services, participating in a number of agency-related events throughout the year. Every year, the Knights of Columbus donate pizzas, which they serve to all Archbishop Damiano School upperclassmen before every holiday dance. In addition, the Knights of Columbus make a yearly Christmas appearance at Archbishop Damiano School with both Mr. and Mrs. Claus. During the visit, students have the chance to sit with both Mrs. Claus and Santa as another volunteer from the Knights of Columbus takes a photo, which goes home with the student as a family keepsake. Adding to their gift of time and services, the Knights of Columbus councils made contributions totaling over $11,000 during the year.
Greater Woodbury Gardener Club
Learning of the newest addition to Archbishop Damiano School’s horticulture program, the Greater Woodbury Gardener Club was more than happy to contribute to the school’s newly installed greenhouse. Last January, the club arrived on campus to personally present a check to the members of the school’s 4-H Club. Thanks to their generous gift and those funds raised by the students and staff of Archbishop Damiano School, the greenhouse will soon have a direct waterline, which will be more accessible for non-ambulatory students participating in the program.
