125 for Roseland

| |

Madison Humphrey was one of many happy second-graders who helped celebrate the 125th anniversary of Roseland Christian School with a coat drive.

The Christian Reformed Church started Roseland in Chicago in 1884, but it has since become an independent school with its own board of directors. There is also a Roseland Christian Reformed Church.

The coats will go to the Roseland Christian Ministries Center, which houses mothers and children who are homeless and runs a drop-in center for people living on the street. The students collected 38 new and gently used coats.
