Christmas for Others Kicks Off

DSC03117We kicked off Christmas for Others, the largest student-run fundraiser in northeast Ohio, on Monday, November 30, 2015.

Don Schwarber, a former theology teacher, started CFO in 1971. Mr. Schwarber came back to share his story with our students. The inspiration behind CFO started with him and his wife. Together they used to deliver food and clothing to families in need on Christmas Eve. He brought the tradition to Padua and got the students involved.

Since 1971, the Padua community has raised over $500,000 and donated lots of food, clothing, toys and goods to charities and families in need. We hope you will join us and find the joy in giving this holiday season.
