JAPAN - Since the foundation of the La Salle Gakuen in 1950, then Brother Principal Marcel Petit encouraged the students to share clothing and daily necessities with the poor who were still restarting their lives after the war. These were collected in baskets before Christmas and given to those who needed it. Since its revival in 1993, the Mothers’ Association, PTA and the alumni have supported this student-run project. This annual fundraising and volunteering activity has helped countless local charities and has sustained support to the projects of De La Salle Solidarieta Internazionale ONLUS.
This year, despite the challenges of COVID-19, the students soldiered on showing their commitment to animate the spirit by organizing selling booths and events for their fellow students and teachers. (Text: Br. Aikee Esmeli FSC; Photos: La Salle Japan Facebook Page)
