The 25th Anniversary Event was a huge success. Special thanks to the leaders of our 25th anniversary event – Rose Loftus, Erin Munez and Susan Thomas. The support of our FXW community was amazing and the charities expressed so much gratitude. We appreciate the work of Priya Valenti and Julie Sznewajs whose effort in securing the charities and their needs for the event was a great match with our community. To the many volunteers who gave their Sunday to set up, clear up, organize and direct the event we express the appreciation of the entire community.

It was a beautiful thing to see families and kids of all ages working together to bring a bit of joy to people they may never meet.

Collectively, we completed over 1500 service hours, created 264 Christmas ornaments, put together 230 care packages, made 295 dog toys and 100 children’s puppets, finger knitted 81 scarves to keep people warm this winter, made 55 baby blankets, created over 500 Thanksgiving day and Halloween placemats to cheer up the homeless and collected an endless number of gently used book to share the gift of reading!! Thank you, FXW!Mother Frances Xavier Warde would be proud of the overwhelming, generous spirit of our community.
