La Salle High School’s Student Life members joined with Maryvale and Hillsides Services for its 17th Annual Adopt-a-Family program.  On Saturday, December 10, hundreds of students, parents, children and families enjoyed games, attacking the Grinch, face painting, 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 help distribute Christmas presents.           During the week preceding the party, students wrapped hundreds of gifts for 76 foster and needy children from Hillsides and 56 orphaned girls from Maryvale.

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