Sheila Swift, Events/Volunteer/Fundraising Coordinator

Hello! My name is Sheila Swift and I am the Events/Volunteer/Fundraising Coordinator at St. Joseph School.  I have met and worked with hundreds of volunteers who are extremely generous with their time and talents. St. Joseph School is rich with the spirit of volunteerism......but our programs won't work without YOU!  It's a fantastic way to meet other school families and a living example for your children.  If you wish to volunteer, or for more information on volunteer opportunities, please email me at  sheila.swift@stjosephcommunity.org
