    Nativity School
    Nativity School Photo - Nativity School students took on extra chores at home and used their allowances to donate coins and bills for the week-long penny wars fundraiser during National Catholic Schools Week. The students` goal for their annual community service project was to raise funds for local children in need. In just 5 days, Nativity School students raised over $1200. They presented two $600 checks; one to a representative from MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children`s Hospital, and one to a representative from the local Ronald McDonald House.
