St. Jude the Apostle School’s Junior Beta Club, a service organization open to seventh- and eighth-grade students, regularly partners with Wildwood Elementary School for various projects and field trips throughout the year.

The Beta students voted to collect donations in early December to purchase bicycles for Cynthia Murphy’s prekindergarten class at Wildwood.

St. Jude collected $980.18 used to purchase 18 bikes. Several club members’ fathers volunteered their time to assemble and transport the bikes and eighth-grade club representatives to Wildwood, where they surprised their prekindergarten buddies.
