High school students give holidays hope

Rosary High School students, staff and parent volunteers participate in the annual Holiday Hopes project on Dec. 8.
Rosary High School students, staff and parent volunteers participate in the annual Holiday Hopes project on Dec. 8.

AURORA – As part of Rosary High School’s Holiday Hopes project, students, staff and parent volunteers dressed in holiday-themed attire, wrapped presents, packed food baskets and delivered gifts to the festively-decorated and gift-filled school foyer on Dec. 13 for pickup by area families.

Holiday Hopes is the school’s annual Christmastime adopt-a-family service project. A family in need is adopted by each homeroom every year. Each family receives wrapped gifts, treats and a food basket complete with ingredients for holiday meals, as well as a gift certificate to a local grocery store.

Students and families made donations to the project in October. Collected donations were put into an Adopt-a-Family fund and divided equally for each adopted family and each homeroom.

This year, 25 families with children who attend St. Peter’s School in Aurora were “adopted” through a partnership with St. Peter’s.

Rosary raised $12,000 to provide gifts for the project’s families.
