Mount St. Mary, ZPreps raising money for destroyed Joplin school
ZPreps, a website that presents live webcasts of high school football and is run by Mount St. Mary teacher/coach Greg Spencer, is raising money for St. Mary Elementary School in Joplin, Mo. The school was destroyed by the May 22 tornado.
The website has only presented Oklahoma high school football games, but tonight will have a live webcast of the McAuley Catholic vs. Joplin JV game.
ZPreps is partnering with Mount St. Mary and other Catholic schools in the Oklahoma City area for the charity event.
Spencer was raised in Miami, OK.
“I have always considered Joplin a home away from home,” Spencer said in a release on ZPreps.com. “I came up with the idea for this project because I wanted to give back, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get people together online for a few minutes and use the power of the internet/social media to help rebuild St. Mary’s Elementary.”
Donations began on Sept. 26 and will continue through Friday.
Spencer’s goal is to raise $5,000.
