Christmas All Year is a project that is helping children at risk with the help of all the organizations on-campus. Claudia Sciandra, junior, is heading the program and helping all the student organizations become involved with one of the many options for all different types of community service.

Every registered organization on-campus has to do a kind of community service and that is what Sciandra and Christmas All Year is helping them with. Sciandra said, “Some of the organizations have been involved with doing the community service for years, so why not extend it to the entire campus?”

Christmas All Year’s main focus is children at risk. A few examples of the community organizations involved with this program are: Special Olympics, Up Til Dawn, Juvenile Diabetes, and AIDS Walk among many others. “Christmas All Year creates bonds with the campus groups and helps the community as a whole in helping children at risk,” Sciandra said.

Many leaders of the student-run organizations agree that this is a great experience for the entire organization as a whole. Sarah Madden, senior, president of the Student Government Association, said, “To be able to contribute as an organization to causes that impact others is always a great way to bring an organization together. It makes you realize, in the end, how important your involvement can be effective to those in need.”

Christmas All Year began last year with the help of advisor Mary Laver. They have made great advances this year with the program. They plan to have a banquet this year to show off what they have done.

One doesn’t have to be a member of any certain organization to become involved in helping. Christmas All Year and all of its projects are open to everyone on-campus.

If interested in finding out more information and becoming involved contact Claudia Sciandra at extension 5142, or by email at css722@cabrini.edu.
