St. Patrick Center on KSDK’s Making a Difference

For the past 16 years, two local schools have provided more than 250,000 pairs of socks and underwear for St. Patrick Center clients through their Funderwear Challenge. One such person, Lawrence Tate, used to be a recipient of these collections, but now he finds himself in a different position – receiving the items for St. Patrick Center as one of its employees.

Lawrence’s story is truly an inspiring one, and was recently featured on 5 on Your Side’s Mike Bush in his series, Making a Difference.

In addition to collecting 24,000 pairs of new socks and underwear, Cor Jesu Academy and St. Joseph’s Academy raised $1,600 in donations.
