On Wednesday, November 12, students from Villa Maria Academy joined residents at Jeanne Jugan to pack boxes full of items and fun gifts in support of Operation Christmas Child. Maeve Ryan, a third grader at the school, and her parents, Marianne and Scott, organized this annual holiday drive. Through the collective efforts of students and neighbors in Silver Beach and the surrounding neighborhoods, Maeve was able to contribute an impressive 368 boxes of love to this wonderful cause.
