We invite you to be a part of the Villanova University “Spread the Spirit” service project. This year’s Christmas party for the North Light Community Center's children will be held on Sunday, December 9th from 1:30 – 4:00 in the Villanova Room (Connelly Center). The children and their families are brought by bus to campus for the party. 200 children and adults are expected at this event, so your assistance is greatly appreciated.
North Light Community Center has asked if we would could “adopt” 30 families this year.
And we will again collect toys for the children from the Church of New Hope and Faith in North Philadelphia AND Cradles to Caryons in Conshohocken. Clearly there is a tremendous need right in our own back yard, and without the kindness, generosity, and support from the Villanova community, these families would go without this holiday season.
If a department, organization, Residence Hall or group chooses to adopt a family, a fun suggestion is to create a "Giving Tree" in your office and each person could select a gift for the adopted family from the tree. One person could organize the gift list to ensure all gifts have been collected!
Any questions, concerns or comments, please contact Joan Hawley, Marybeth Avioli, or Marie Witman, Chairpersons for the Villanova University Spread the Spirit Project.
