Holiday Project Delivers Love

Hundreds of boxes of colorfully-wrapped toys, books, and clothes poured out of classrooms and buildings across campus and into three large trucks destined for St. Gregory the Great Church where they will be distributed to 135 families including 401 children. It was the last step in the 2015 Holiday Project, now in its 25th year. The success of the Holiday Project, which ended with the delivery on Wednesday, December 16, was the result of much hard work and the generosity of the McDonogh community. Bridget Collins, Director of Religious Studies, Character, and Service, summed up the spirit of the project saying, “I am inspired by knowing that in a world that has been darkened by violence this year, the light of love will be shining in 135 homes because of the compassion and generosity of the McDonogh community. Thank you for brightening the lives of so many people this holiday season.”
