In a society in which the thought of Thanksgiving immediately springs to the mind images of turkey, football, and parades, most people forget about the true meaning of the holiday – to give thanks to our Lord for the countless blessings and opportunities that He has provided for us.
Chaminade’s GSO Helps the Community through a Christmas Toy Drive
By Patrick Grindel ‘18
Chaminade’s General Student Organization, commonly referred to as the GSO, has been collecting new, unwrapped gifts for the past few weeks. Led by Senior GSO moderator, Mr. Casey Giordano ‘93, the club procured these gifts, and donated them to Dryden Street School in Westbury. Many students made sure to bring in their gifts and drop them off in the Darby Auditorium lobby throughout the collection which began on December 2.
On December 14, GSO closed the collection, and loaded up the truck with a plethora of bags filled with gifts. “These gifts are going to make Christmas much more special for many of the students at Dryden Street School,” said GSO member Kieran Rodriguez ‘18. “Donating gifts is a great thing to do. GSO helps the community and shows outside schools what Chaminade is all about!”
