Brothers’ Table Part of Lasallian Mission

De La Salle Collegiate has had a long tradition of making its Catholic education affordable through Tuition Assistance. As the late Brother George Synan, FSC, was known to say, the school never wants to turn away any boy strictly because of a lack of funds.

For some Pilots, however, tuition is just the beginning of their needs.

“Some of our boys don’t have enough to eat,” says President Emeritus Brother Bob Carnaghi. “It’s important to know that these situations have always been present at De La Salle, and they continue today. The Brothers are personally committed to making sure these boys have something to eat during the school day.”

To address this need, the school has begun a program called “The Brothers’ Table” to help provide necessary food and extras for students identified through a detailed application process.

The goal is to raise $50,000 annually to fund The Brothers’ Table. The Brothers’ Community at De La Salle has already contributed the first $5,000.

“This is an important part of our Lasallian Mission,” said Brother Bob. “We wanted to make a contribution ourselves to help and to highlight this issue. I am calling upon our friends and alumni, especially our recent graduates, to join the Brothers in meeting our goal. If we raise more than the goal, we will put it towards the Tuition Assistance Fund.”

People wishing to contribute to The Brothers’ Table may do so online at ThePilotHangar.com, or through the Lasallian Fund by clearly designating their gift to be directed to The Brothers’ Table.
