Recently, Xavier junior Sonya Colattur was interviewed & filmed by CBS Evening News (national). The CBS Evening News featured Sonya’s story. Several years ago, Sonya formed a nonprofit, GrandPaws Pantry. Her organization provides pet food and supplies to senior citizens with companion pets in Phoenix metro care facilities. She raises funds to support its Senior Companion Pet Care Program and help senior citizens live happily with their pets.
Putting faith into practice, Xavier students give back 30,000+ hours each year to community service and volunteer activities. The story aired on the CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell locally at 6 pm (Arizona time) on CBS Channel 5 towards the end of the broadcast.
