|Philanthropy means "love of humanity" in the sense of caring for, nourishing, developing, and enhancing "what it is to be human" on both the benefactors' (by identifying and exercising their values in giving and volunteering) and beneficiaries' (by benefitting) parts. The most conventional modern definition is "private initiatives, for public good, focusing on quality of life". Wikipedia|
Christmas 2014 - Don Bosco Adopt a family
Each year for the last few years Coach Kluempers has organized a Christmas project for needy families. For the third straight year the Christmas 2014 event was a "Don Bosco Adopt a Family". Cash donations were raised to buy presents for families. We had three families to buy for this year. The families filled out a wants and needs sheet so we had all their sizes for the shopping. Several boys were given a list of things to buy and did the shopping. Kohls at 95th was a great help in offering some great discounts. Many thanks go out to the wonderful people at Kohls.
After shopping the boys met at Coach Kluempers house a few evenings and spent time wrapping each present. This was a great time for the boys to give back and earn some service hours. On Saturday December 20th the boys gathered the presents and delivered them to the families.
The event was a lot of fun for the kids and a great success. Thanks go to everyone that helped out!!
