Mount Carmel Academy homerooms, clubs, teams, and organizations worked together to help the Cross Catholic Box of Joy program, a nationwide Christmas gift outreach. By packing 141 “Boxes of Joy” with toys and other gifts, our students will bless children living in extreme poverty by sharing the joy of Christmas and demonstrating Christ’s love and compassion.
