St. Peter’s Episcopal School Students, Church Help “Save” 387 Lives

In the Chattanoogan Online

At St. Peter’s Episcopal School, preschool through fifth grade students learn the importance of service to others. This month, the school participated in a global outreach program, NetsforLife, through Episcopal Relief and Development.

Local coordinator for Episcopal Relief and Development, the Reverend Lou Parsons, (St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church of Ooltewah) visited St. Peter’s to share information about this program and the positive impact it can have for a very small amount of money.

NetsforLife provides insecticide-treated nets to protect children and families from malaria. Malaria is transmitted through the bites of infected mosquitoes and kills nearly one million people every year – most are children under the age of five. One $12 net can save the lives of three children
