Sign Up Now for Dresden Christmas Outreach
October 5th, 2011

St. Pius X has a partnership with our neighbors at Dresden Elementary, a kindergarten through fifth grade DeKalb county public school. Many of these children come from low income families, who are not in the position to provide much of a Christmas celebration for their children. One of the wonderful programs conducted each year by the Mothers’ Club is the Dresden Christmas Outreach Project.  Last year, we had a tremendous response from the St. Pius X community and were able to make Christmas brighter for 151 children from 44 families. A total of 28 SPX organizations, clubs, and teams participated in the project, along with faculty and staff, families of existing students and alumni, corporate offices of the school’s parents and community friends. The main focus of the project is to provide clothing along with a few toys for these students.

We are currently in the process of determining the number of Dresden families that we can sponsor. If you are interested in sponsoring a child or buying a gift, please contact Anne Grabowski (anne.grabowski@choa.org). We also need SPX student and parent volunteers to help with wrapping and the project in general. Students can receive a Work of Mercy if they follow the guidelines. For more information and volunteer opportunity dates, please click here.
