Cor Jesu Connection: Camp Rainbow
 
Local Outreach: The Little Bit Foundation
 
Global Community: The Snow Foundation

Camp Rainbow
Camp Rainbow allows a free camp for children undergoing treatment for, and survivor of, cancer and blood- related diseases and disorders. This camp is an opportunity for kids going through these hard times to be kids! This is a safe, no judging camp that allows kids to make positive memories and also have a relief from the everyday stresses caused by their illness. Kids will make friends that relate to their situation like no one else is able to. These friendships last a lifetime and cannot be compared to any other bond. The Camp Rainbow family is opened everyone no matter their situation. Camp Rainbow changes many kids’ lives and is a family to them.

The Little Bit Foundation
It all began with a coat and a smile. After handing out coats collected for a St. Louis inner city elementary school in the winter of 2001, a student approached me grinning ear to ear exclaiming, “My dad will be so happy about my new coat!” I’d noticed the young man arriving earlier on the school bus wearing a coat that dragged along the pavement – hardly warm and snug – and thought to myself that it was most likely his father’s hand-me-down. In that moment, I knew my life’s purpose. At the time, I had no idea of the depth of poverty over 173,000 children must overcome just minutes from my home. Children who are curious, funny and warm, who hope and dream like any other, and whose futures depend on what they are able to do with their education. But consider the obstacles they face. Many go without shoes that fit or clean underwear and socks. They come to school with little more than shirts in the winter months and go home to empty food cabinets. They aren’t prepared with school supplies or have a book to call their own. Many have undiagnosed health conditions or vision problems that go uncorrected. Some are homeless, touched by violence and constantly on the move. How much can we expect them to concentrate in class or feel good about themselves? This became the mission of The Little Bit Foundation: to remove obstacles standing in front of the greatest opportunity students have to end the cycle of poverty – their education. It’s providing for basic needs, such as shoes, coats, uniforms, underwear and socks, books and school supplies. It’s ensuring students have a nutritious meal after the school day, receive instruction in personal and dental hygiene, have access to medical screenings and mental health intervention. We are about helping students see and present themselves in a positive light, ensuring they are comfortable and content in the classroom, and uplifting them with words of encouragement and the knowledge that someone cares and believes in them. We are The Little Bit Foundation, and I encourage you to join our incredible, life-changing journey!

The Snow Foundation
The Snow Foundation is a voice for rare disease, working towards a cure for Wolfram Syndrome and developing novel therapies for diabetes, vision loss, hearing loss and neurodegeneration. A mom of a child who was diagnosed with the disease when she turned four founded it. The researchers have decided that wolfram syndrome is such a rare disease that will cost too much money to solve. However; this mom, of a Rockwood student, decided she would take it upon herself to earn enough money to research and help other families who suffer from the disease. This is a charity we need to donate to because money is the sole reason the disease still exists. This foundation has started from one mom’s determination to solve the problem, and we are an important part of solving the problem.
 
We will also be sponsoring:
 
Our Students' Summer Service Trip
On June 24-30, 2018 Cor Jesu students participating in this year’s summer service trip will be working to make homes safer, warmer, and drier for people living in extreme poverty in the Appalachian mountains.  
 
 
The Apostles of the Sacred Heart mission in Benin Africa - The sisters operate the Blessed Clelia Merloni Medical Center. It is open during the day for services and minor surgeries, and the maternity ward remains open around the clock. The center provides mothers and their babies with essential health care and education. Now the sisters have moved into a much poorer area to another clinic that is very primitive.
 
These five charities will each receive 18% of the money we raise during Penny Queen Week. Additionally, 10% of all funds raised will go to CJ Endowment fund, which contributes over $100,000 each year to CJ families in need of assistance with tuition.
