This is a requirement of the service sites. You MUST wear tennis shoes.

Around Christmas Time, for the past 22 years, DeLaSalle has spiritually adopted several families through Sponsor a Family Minnesota and the Aliveness Project. These families have benefited greatly from our generous spirit. Last year, our community raised almost $4,000. Several teachers have graciously agreed to be the money collection point for each grade level. Donate money in 9th and 10th grade Theology classes, in 11th grade Social Studies classes, and 12th grade English classes. Money collection continues through Wednesday, Dec. 3. Thank you in advance for your generosity
