Padua Distributes $30K to Charities & Families in Need during Christmas For Others Campaign

DSC_0012Padua held its annual Christmas For Others mass on Friday, December 19, 2014. Thanks to the entire Padua community and a few last minute donors, we exceeded our goal and raised $30,506.12 for charity. The money and goods were donated to local, national and international non-profits and families in need after the liturgy.

For more than 40 years, the Padua community has come together in the Franciscan spirit of giving. Since its inception in 1971, CFO has raised nearly $500,000 for charity. CFO is the largest student-run outreach program in northeast Ohio. It is sponsored, organized and operated by the students, under the direction of Padua’s Key (Kiwanis) Club.
