Students carry pews into Roosevelt HS. Temple Israel donated 79 pews to the school to be made into desks and bookshelves. The idea originated with Karen Kalish of HOME WORKS!, who saw a need for students to have a place to work at home.
Ameren presents HOME WORKS! and SLPS with a
generous $25,000 donation that will benefit children, including these eight Clay Elementary students. Also pictured are Brian K. Leonard, Mark Schlake, Karen Kalish, Dr. Donna Owens (principal at Clay Elementary), and Dr. Kelvin Adams (superintendent of SLPS).
