Rev. Tom Slon, SJ, rector of the Jesuit community, was on hand today, December 9, to bless the items received by Public Safety for its annual Holiday Charity Drive. The items will be donated to support the mission of the Ladies of Charity Christmas Program. Faculty and staff members generously donated toys, gift cards, gently used clothing, bicycles and other items.
Sharon Kasperczyk, from the Alumni Engagement Office, organizes hundreds of Christmas gifts that will be donated to families at St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy.
The Institutional Advancement team, the Canisius College Alumni Board and the Buffalo-Niagara Alumni Chapter each adopted a St. Luke’s family for the holidays. From the looks of things, their generosity runneth over. An estimated 70 people gifted much needed clothes, home essentials and toys to help make Christmas more special for those less fortunate.
