November 28th, 2023 | News

Padua alumni are invited to join us as we celebrate Christmas for Others!

Since its inception in 1971, the Padua community has come together to show what it truly means to be Franciscan. In total, CFO has raised over $500,000 for many local and worldwide charities and has become the largest student-run outreach program in Northeast Ohio.

Here are a few ways alumni can help make this a memorable CFO season:
