Twelve families were identified and each of those was assigned to one of the Father McGivney “Houses.” McGivney “Houses” are student-led groups within the school.

Each House bought and wrapped gifts for the family to help make their Christmas a bit brighter.

Bobbie Madura, Student Services Director, explains, “Change a Child’s Christmas is just another way McGivney is Serving the Culture of Life. Our students are filled with joy when they give back, it is a program we all look forward to each year."
