Christmas Generosity

Christmas Generosity

Dozens of migrant children and their families connected with the Jesuit service club Agmen Christi for a festive Christmas party on Sunday (Dec. 10) Plant City.

The annual holiday party is one of several times throughout the year when Agmen members get together with children and families of the Migrant Education Program (MEP). They have developed a special relationship, connecting several times a year and always during the holidays.

Agmen members, with an assist from Santa and Mrs. Claus and several Academy of the Holy Names students, gave more than 60 personalized gifts to the children in the MEP during the Christmas party at Robinson Elementary, fulfilling specific gift requests and wrapping a present for every request. The school's cafeteria was decorated for the holiday and filled with joy, camaraderie, smiles, and happiness.

Migrant advocate Julie Snyder, P ’16, who has been recognized by Hillsborough County as a leading diversity educator, helped coordinate the event, which included lots of crafts, games, and food, as well as some spirited Christmas karaoke led James Slack ’24, Dutch Iavarone ’25, and Carlos Lamoutte ’25.
