December is the most wonderful time of the year at Padua Franciscan High School. All month long our students, faculty, staff and alumni participate in our Christmas For Others campaign. CFO is a program designed to make the holidays brighter for the less fortunate.
Our students raise funds in a number of ways. The most exciting is our Coin Wars competition. Our freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors and faculty/staff compete against each other to raise the most money. This year, in 18 minutes, we collected $9,738.84 cash for local charities and families in need. In all, $10,407.52 was raised.
The first $2,000 raised will go to the Senior Toy Project for the Bishop Cosgrove Center. The reminder will go to local charities and families in need. Thank you to all who participated and made 2013’s CFO Coin Wars a success.
