Mount Saint Charles Delivers Christmas Baskets to 63 Needy Families in Woonsocket

Woonsocket This year, Mount Saint Charles Academy made Christmas food baskets for 63 needy Woonsocket families whose names were on a list sent from the Family Resources Community Action. Throughout the Christmas season, the entire Mount community brings in food donations to fill each basket.

Anyone can also take a child's name (whose family is receiving a food basket) off of the MSC Giving Tree and fill the baskets with toys as well. As the toys are wrapped, they fill up Mr. Edwin Burke’s office, principal of Mount Saint Charles, until the baskets are assembled. This year, Mount students, parents, faculty, and staff delivered baskets to 63 families.

Deacon Anthony Gagliani, Director of Campus Ministry at Mount, said, “The Mount community’s generosity of time, treasure and spirit was evident throughout each stage of preparation and delivery.”  The deliveries took place after school on Thursday, December 19th.
