Fourth Graders Host Bake Sale to Benefit Local Pet Shelter

Fourth Graders Host Bake Sale to Benefit Local Pet Shelter

“I’ll make a difference, as a child of faith. I’ll make a difference in the world.” These are the first two lines of St. Justin’s school song often sung at Mass and other school-wide events. Recently, a group of girls from St. Justin’s fourth grade class put these words into action by hosting a bake sale to benefit the Silicon Valley Pet Project, a nonprofit organization committed to saving local at-risk animals. It truly was a grassroots effort, starting with a suggestion from one of the students and ending with many more offering to help. With the support of their families, the girls worked hard to make the bake sale a success. They spent countless hours in the kitchen baking sweet treats. They also found donors willing to make matching donations. After two days of selling, the children were proud to present the pet shelter a check for $1,164. As a reward, the girls were allowed to play with some of the cats housed at the shelter. When asked how they felt after this experience, the girls all agreed they “felt happy because (they) were able to help others in the community.” They recognized the power of teamwork and that a little inspiration and some hard work can go a long way making a difference in our...

Joe Bauer Receives Austen Warburton Community Service Award

Congratulations to Mr. Joe Bauer, St. Justin’s Pastoral Associate extraordinaire, on receiving the Austen Warburton Community Service Award at this year’s Mission City Community Fund Annual Dinner held at the Santa Clara Convention Center on November 11. This award celebrates the importance of public service and is presented each year to an individual exemplifying the spirit and character of Mission City Community Fund founder Austen Warburton, an attorney, civic leader, educator, historian, and philanthropist who made it his life’s mission to make his community a better place to live.   Mr. Bauer has done just that for the St. Justin community. As director of the parish’s Community Ministry program, Mr. Bauer has dedicated his life to help the less fortunate. The program opens its doors six days a week to distribute food and other necessities to people in need, and every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, meals are distributed to hundreds of hungry families. In fact, just at Christmastime alone, over 800 families receive assistance from Joe Bauer and his team of selfless volunteers.   In addition to working with the poor, Mr. Bauer also coordinates special meals for the senior citizens of the parish. Known as “Outreach Dinners,” these get-togethers are held 1-2 times a month and provide the seniors with a delicious lunch followed by several entertaining rounds of BINGO.   Mr. Bauer truly is a pillar of the St. Justin community. Students and their families are encouraged to get involved in his ministries by donating food, clothing, toys, books, blankets, or simply their time. He is a constant reminder of what it means to walk in the footsteps of Christ and that “it is in giving that we...
