Gary and Laura Sklaver of Hamden pose with Barbara Anton and her fourth-grade class on April 7 at St. Rita School in Hamden, where they gathered for an Easter prayer service celebrating the school’s efforts to support the ClearWater Initiative, a mission founded by the Sklavers’ son, the late Army Capt. Benjamin Sklaver.


The school devoted its Lenten Service Project to raising funds to support the ClearWater Initiative, which provides clean water to thousands of Ugandans.


The school raised more than $6,000.


Capt. Sklaver was killed in Afghanistan in 2009. (Photo submitted)
