What is Santa’s Cottage? As children are beginning to make their wish lists for Christmas, they are also looking forward to giving. Each year at Holy Cross, students have the opportunity to participate in Santa’s Cottage — a real store set up by the PEACE group on site at school. They are so excited to surprise their loved ones on Christmas with presents they have chosen and wrapped themselves! There are gifts for everyone: moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, sisters, brothers, pets and friends. Prices range from $1 – $5 per item. The profits earned from this event will go to help a Holy Cross family. More information will be coming home with students before Thanksgiving so they can create their shopping lists and figure out their budgets.
Don’t Miss Out! Many people are needed to make this a successful event. Opportunities to help include: donating tape, gift bags and gift tags; cutting wrapping paper; setting up the store; and helping children shop and wrap at the event on December 8 and 9. If you’d like to help with this fun experience, please contact Stephanie Fedder.
