McCafferty Funeral Home Organizes “Operation Sweaters For Veterans”
Funeral director Mark McCafferty first approached officials at Judge and Blessed Trinity with the idea of a clothing drive for veterans. McCafferty is an alumnus of both schools, although Blessed Trinity was still named St. Timothy School during his time there.
“It was a great idea from McCafferty Funeral Home, especially with us celebrating Veterans Day (on Nov. 11),” said the Rev. Joseph Campellone, president of Father Judge High School. “A large portion of our alumni are involved in (military) service and a big portion are vets.
“Those men give us the freedom to practice religion and to have a school to develop young men. They give us the freedom to live in this nation and participate in what our Constitution calls us to do.”
McCafferty said he got the idea from Veterans & Family Memorial Care, a national organization of about 1,000 funeral providers who support vets. He was the only Philadelphia funeral director selected by the organization to participate in its Operation Sweaters for Veterans program.
“We were the only funeral home in the city to get nominated to do this and we were thrilled,” said McCafferty, whose grandfathers and father were veterans.
As an incentive to the students, McCafferty offered scholarship money to the most prolific contributors at each school. Mikula earned a $1,000 grant, while Quirk and Turner split a $500 award.
But their efforts had little to do with the money involved.
