St. Isidore car wash
The Fourth Annual St. Isidore School Eighth Grade Car Wash raised more than $4,500 for the Natalie Giorgi Sunshine Foundation and Joshua's Journey of Hope Organization. Natalie Marie Giorgi, who had cousins, family and friends at St. Isidore died at the age of 13 from an allergic reaction to peanuts while on a family trip. The foundation was created to reduce dangerous food allergy deaths by spreading public awareness, providing education regarding emergency responses, and increasing the availability of epinephrine injectors in public places. Joshua, the cousin of a St. Isidore pupil, is a 7-year old boy diagnosed with Cystinosis, an extremely rare disease. The nonprofit organization supports research for improved treatments and a cure.
