The Sacred Heart freshman class got into the spirit of the season by "adopting” a local foster child this Christmas rather than doing the traditional class gift exchange.

Each year, the Missouri Children's Division collects a Christmas wish list for kids in foster care. The freshmen fulfilled the list and wrapped up a few more surprise presents.
"This is truly what the Christmas Season is about and I'm so proud of their selflessness and thoughtfulness of others," said Marlo Siron, Class of 2025 moderator.

This group, led by Class President Sophia Carney, organized, collected, and delivered the items to the business that was one of the sites for the Missouri Children’s Division. "Helping others is truly one of the things that God calls us to do."
