Franciscan Missionary Spirit

St. Francis High School (Athol Springs, NY)
Franciscan Youth Ministry (FYM) Service Trip

April 12, 2017, twenty eight students and two staff members spent the morning volunteering with 716 Ministries, formerly known as Westside Ministries, a faith-based housing revitalization service organization working to improve neighborhoods across the city of Buffalo. Students helped to clean out an old house across the street from the Broadway Market & afterward took a tour of Corpus Christi Church.

While working, they also discovered a litter of newborn kittens
which were rescued after a student called his mother
who works at The Ten Lives Club Cat Adoption agency.

Anyone from the area looking to volunteer at 716 Ministries,
please know that they are always in need on
Saturday mornings and occasionally on Saturday afternoons.
Their volunteer coordinator is Megan Platt: mplatt@716ministries.org.
