    St. Stephen Catholic School Donates to My Warrior’s Place

    Riverview, FL:  Today, Linda Umoh, Principal at St. Stephen Catholic School, presented a check for $2700 to Kelly Kowall, President and Founder of My Warrior’s Place in Ruskin.  The school’s annual Walkathon took place on Veteran’s Day this year.  As part of the event, the school held a ceremony honoring veterans and promised to donate 10% of the amount raised to My Warrior’s Place.  Over the years, the students have supported My Warrior’s Place through onsite visits to help with property maintenance.  This is a service project the middle school students look forward to, and they understand the importance of helping to maintain the property. 
     
    Kelly founded My Warrior’s Place when her son Corey, like many others, gave his life for our freedom.  My Warrior’s Place is a Retreat Center for veterans, military service members, law enforcement, fire fighters, and their families and offers programs to help the healing and coping process.  The school is happy to support Kelly in her mission and plans to continue this relationship in the future.
