Leonardtown Student Association Continues Christmas Caring Program
College of Southern Maryland students, faculty and staff helped wrap the scores of gifts donated for eight families being sponsored for the holidays by the Leonardtown Campus Student Association this year on Dec. 7.
In addition, the Marine Aviation Detachment at Patuxent River Naval Air Station contributed gifts for two of the sponsored families. In return, CSM representatives will be assisting the Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots toy distribution event Dec. 16 and 17.
The families and gift requests were provided through the St. Mary’s County Christmas Caring program. The college participates by putting up an angel tree on campus with the college’s sponsored families’ gift requests printed on paper angel ornaments. Those who wanted to participate, selected an ornament and donated a gift listed.
The Leonardtown Campus Student Association has been participating in the Christmas Caring program for more than 15 years.
