No other time of the year encourages giving more than the holidays. That is why over 50 seventh and eighth graders from St. Francis Xavier Preparatory School in Hyannis, purchased toys and designed baby blankets, which their parents and grandparents knit, that were given to children at HAC’s Angel House shelter last month.
Eighth grader Aubrey Homa explained their act of generosity in a simple way: “Christmas is the time for giving.”
“We want to help other people so they have a happy Christmas,” added her classmate Juliana Maurice.
“If we were in their situation, I know they’d want to help us too,” said eighth grader Ava Ferreira about the recipients of their goodwill.
