Students surpass toy drive goal

SANTA FE SPRINGS - St. Pius X Parish School recently completed its annual community service project in support of the Spark of Love campaign.With the support of school families, staff and parishioners, students were able to collect more than 100 toys and various sports equipment for underserved children and teens in Los Angeles and surrounding counties. "The enthusiasm and generosity of our students and parishioners never ceases to amaze me," said principal Greg Climaco. "Each year we are able to collect more gifts, and so share the joy of Christmas with other children in need. It is just one of many worthy projects our student council has identified in our year-round program to help others in our community." Beginning in January, students at St. Pius X will begin collecting spare change in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Greater Los Angeles. To donate, call Tricia Aguirre at (562) 864-4818.
