St. Thomas More’s Christmas Miracle program has been a 15 year-long tradition at our school, and will continue its legacy again this year. Christmas Miracle is a program in which classes at STM sponsor a child and make their Christmas a little brighter by buying them a present. The campaign sponsors local elementary school children in the Hamilton community whose families are unable to provide them with Christmas presents, as well as residents of Inasmuch House, Notre Dame House and St. Martin’s Manor.
Last year, Christmas Miracle managed to help over 300 women, children and teens. This year, it hopes to do the same. On December 5th, a representative from each first period class that wished to sponsor a child was sent down to select a class “ornament”. On this card was the name of the sponsored child (changed for privacy sake), their age and the present they are hoping to receive this year. Now, it is the job of the class to raise $30 -$35 to buy this present, as well as a warm hat and pair of mittens.
Christmas Miracle will also be hosting a raffle, with several amazing prizes, and a bake sale during December. If you have any further questions, please see Ms. Dyment in Student Success. She can be reached at email@example.com, or at 905-388-3030 ext. 3553. Let’s make this our most successful Christmas Miracle campaign yet!
