Eighth graders helped Sister Patricia pack up the 400+ winter accessory items that were collected…
On November 28, #GivingTuesday, students and families from Villa Maria Academy were once again be able to be “Villa Angels,” as they dropped off their over bags of gifts to the school to be donated to children who have been sponsored through the Delaware Valley Children’s Charity Holiday Program. Villa proudly partners with the Delaware Valley Children’s Charity (dvcconline.org) each year to bring this very special program to the hearts of the Villa Maria community.
For several years now, Villa families have been sponsoring children through the DVCC’s Holiday Program which matches sponsors with children in need. As sponsors, families commit to providing for their assigned child for the holidays. The suggested items such as warm clothing, toys and food for the child help to provide comfort and delight during the winter season.
Because of the overwhelming generosity of Villa families and friends, Villa was privileged to sponsor over 150 children! This is a wonderful example of children and families making a difference, which sums up the mission and philosophy of Villa Maria Academy – we believe that each girl can make a difference by using the power of her influence.
We are so happy to be a part of #GIVINGTUESDAY this year on November 28. It is such a wonderful way to show how Villa gives back. At Villa, we live by two core values of respect and reverence – our school-wide efforts in this Holiday Program help to demonstrate these virtues and show our compassion for those in need
