A substantial donation to Cardinal Mooney High School was announced today at the school. The dollar amount was not released as requested by the donors, Denise DeBartolo York, CMHS class of 1968, and Eddie DeBartolo, class of 1964, and their families.
Bishop George V. Murry of the Diocese of Youngstown and the Rev. Gerald DeLucia, CMHS president, spoke. “This is the largest gift to a Mahoning Valley high school,“ the bishop said.
Father DeLucia emphasized the substantial nature of the financial gift in that it will provide tuition assistance for students and be used for further renovations and updates at the 58-year-old school. The funds are specifically marked for use at the school’s location at 2545 Erie St. in the city.
