Congratulations to six members of the Class of 2020 for their incredible volunteerism! Founded by Tom ’56 and Debbie Healey, the Giving Tree Program benefits the greater good at DeLaSalle and in the broader community through service. By volunteering for more than 100 hours or designing an original service project, students are eligible to apply for the award. Those who are selected receive a certificate of thanks and “pay it forward” by providing financial assistance in their name to an anonymous DeLaSalle student in need.
