Our Coat Drive goes poolside with Olympian Katie Ledecky at Stone Ridge!

Best Blogger Tips
Yesterday swimmers from three high schools here in the Archdiocese of Washington - Stone Ridge, St. John's, and Gonzaga - opened up their season by collecting over 70 coats to support our Joseph's Coats of Many Colors Drive!

The swim meet attracted some media coverage as Olympic gold medalist Katie Ledecky, a sophomore at Stone Ridge, hit the pool with her team, breaking two of her own school records! Watch Katie on Channel 9 news below, showing some love for Catholic Charities:


Thank you to all athletes and their families who helped make the poolside coat drive such a tremendous success! Check out more photos from the swim meet on our Facebook (and please 'like' us while you're there).
