It has been heartening to work alongside a great number of young people on Meet Each Need with Dignity's highly successful program supplying Christmas boxes to the needy. The students were there during the week, and on weekends were eagerly and efficiently pitching in on any task given to them. They are a credit to themselves, their parents, teachers and schools.
