In January 2024, we participated in Holy Cross School’s “Packed with Love” service project. In just two days, we raised $1,600 to purchase personal care items, toys, blankets and backpacks for school-aged children entering foster care in Onondaga County. Many children enter foster care with few or no personal belongings. With our contribution, Holy Cross students were able to pack 68 backpacks with love, in hopes they bring some comfort to the children during this challenging time.
