The 12 Days of Giving
Posted on 12/02/2018
Our tree at the end of the 12 Days of Giving.

Holy Cross was given a list of 12 items Christmas Cheer is in need of to fill their hampers and supply local food banks. We challenged our students and everyone stepped up donating MORE THAN 5000 ITEMS over the 12 day food drive!!! You should all be proud of yourselves for this amazing effort. Christmas Cheer is truly thankful!


Throughout the 12 Days of Giving, students were challenged to a friendly competition with Alcona Glen to see who could donate the most food. We would like to announce that Holy Cross is the winner with 5022 items!
