Christmas was in full swing at LaSalle with the December 7th Holiday Open House welcoming over 200 guests to LaSalle’s campus, Catholic Women’s Service League Christmas Boutique and Staff Appreciation Luncheon on December 19th. Christmas Spirit projects involved month long efforts by many to help feed and make the magic of the season come alive for many of our youth and their families. In addition to our staff, boards, friends, donors and the Catholic Women’s Service League, LaSalle was very blessed to receive gifts and donations from Sysco’s, Ginsberg Distributors, St. John’s / St. Ann’s Outreach Center, Albany’s Christian Brothers Academy, Siena College, SUNY Polytechnic and a special Christmas Eve visit from Santa (aka Albany’s Victory Church Pastor Charlie Muller)!!
