The kids at Assumption School and Church have been busy this holiday season, hosting events that benefited the George Mark Children’s House in the San Leandro hills. George Mark is a pediatric palliative care center that serves families with children who have a serious medical illness.

On Wednesday, Dec. 12, Assumption School’s second grade class hosted the school’s monthly “Mission Munchies” bake sale, raising $250 for George Mark

Then, on Sunday, Dec. 17, Assumption Church’s Confirmation class responded to George Mark’s call for gift cards for its families.

The Confirmation class planned and hosted a Morning with Santa where the “admission fee” was a gift card to be donated to George Mark Children’s House. They collected $600 in donations.

The Assumption Church Confirmation class includes tenth graders from all over San Leandro – Drew Retallick, Reina Tengan, Andrew Levy, Christian Castro, Zayna Yamini, Jordan Ortiz-Pallen, Emily Caviglia, Hannah Wulff, Toni Gadar, and Juliana Wells.
