|The Samaritan Center of Syracuse honored CBA students at the Good Samaritan Awards Dinner held at the Holiday Inn and Convention Center on May 10.
The Samaritan Center, a food kitchen in downtown Syracuse, honors individuals and organizations in the community who represent the Good Samaritan in all each year. The individuals recognized symbolize the many volunteers and contributors who help fulfill the mission of the Samaritan Center 365 days a year through their investment of time, talent and treasures.
The Peer Ministry Leadership team, along with senior softball pitcher Jordan Sheridan, each received certificates for their collaborative and individual work for the Samaritan Center.
Every first and third Monday of the month, students in Peer Ministry and other CBA students served dinner at the Samaritan Center. They also occasionally served breakfast andlunch. Peer Ministry Leaders represent 90 students who do service work throughout the community during the year.
For the past three years, Sheridan, an All-Central New York pitcher, has raised money for the Samaritan Center with her "Strike Out Hunger" campaign. For every strike out posted by Sheridan, money raised through pledges, went to the Samaritan Center.
Principal Brother Joseph Jozwiak, FSC was on hand to accept the award on behalf of CBA.
