CHESTERVILLE — St. Mary Catholic School students filled their bags with gifts for the whole family — for free.

The school’s 16th annual Christmas Wrap Program was a huge success! There were toys, games, books, camping gear, and various other gifts for purchase.

Families and community members sent in unused items to be donated and purchased by students for their family members.

The event wouldn’t have happened without the many kind parent volunteers.

Head of the Christmas Wrap Program Stacey Weagant was so grateful for everyone’s help. “A special thanks to FCC for donating 300 bags to the students to get all of their treasures home,” she said.

They’d also like to thank the many parents and staff for generously donating all the amazing, new, and gently-used items for the event.
