Student Life members joined with Eliot Middle School and Hillsides Services for its 18th Annual Adopt-a-Family program held on Saturday, December 15, 2012 on La Salle’s campus. Hundreds of students, parents, children and families enjoyed games, Christmas Cookie decorating, Christmas carols, bingo and a delicious lunch at the Adopt-A-Family Christmas party. Santa and his elves arrived to visit with the children at the party and to help distribute Christmas presents.

During the week preceding the party, La Salle students wrapped hundreds of gifts for foster and needy children from Hillsides and Eliot Middle School. Additionally, gifts were donated to 15 children of military families from Fort Irwin.

“It is a selfless, generous and fun way for our students, alumni and our community to start the Christmas Season,” said Michelle Grima, Student Life Service Coordinator. “Everyone truly had a great time!”
