MCCN once again will help brighten the holidays of over 300 lower income children at Avondale Elementary School through the Avondale Holiday Giving Program.

Here’s how it works: a Christmas tree decorated with ornaments outlining each student’s gift requests is located in the Lobby of Marian Hall. Interested students, faculty, staff and MCW colleagues can select an ornament off the tree and purchase the gift listed on it – limit $20. Unwrapped gifts with ornament attached are to be placed under the tree by noon on Monday, December 12.

There will be a gift wrapping party in the Recreation Room in the basement of Marian Hall on Tuesday, December 13 from noon until 5 p.m. Donations of wrapping paper will also be accepted at this time. Any help is appreciated!

The gifts will be delivered to the students at Avondale the week before their holiday break. Thank you in advance for adding some holiday cheer for disadvantaged kids.
