From Director of Character Education Kate Parker-Burgard:
Once again, the Fireplace Commons was filled with nonprofit vendors and eager shoppers as people looked to find just the right gift for someone on their list. Students, faculty and parents alike came to the Center for Leadership’s Holiday Boutique to Support Nonprofits in search of meaningful gifts. The Boutique was developed over 12 years ago by the St. Luke’s Student Service Board as a way of directing some holiday money to wonderful organizations that are actively engaged in making the world a better, kinder place.
This year, people could shop to support: Sister City project, Our Woven Community, OM pajamas, PAWS, Wolf Conservation Center, Tabitha House, Good Shepherd Orphanage, Part Of The Solution (POTS in the Bronx), Love 146, Gender and Sexuality Alliance, Blossom Hill Foundation, Apaches’ Promise, All Hands, Inspirica, Think Pink and our own school store.
Many thanks to everyone who came out to support this event.
