Ridgewood School Helps Arthritis Org.

Students at St. Matthias School in Ridgewood recently participated in a dress down day which raised funds for the Arthritis Foundation. As noted, the event-in which students made donations in order to wear blue clothing instead of their traditional uniforms for a day-aimed to bring attention to juvenile arthritis. Approximately $555 was raised by the student body for the event. Eighth-grade girls are shown holding the check sent by the school to the Arthritis Foundation. The girls are (from left to right) Kristin Jones, Erin Wengerter, Brandy DeLeon, Melina Bilajbegovic and Cameron Villaruel.
