Fa-la-la-la-la to the students, faculty, and staff at St. Edmund Preparatory High School for their generosity and kindness.

The giving gang donated toys and other essential items to Hour Children.

Hour Children, founded in 1986, is a program to end the cycles of intergenerational incarceration.

The initiative, created by Sister Tesa Fitzgerald and four other Sisters of St. Joseph, opened the doors of a former convent, now called My Mother’s House, to children of incarcerated women; forming the basis of what would become Hour Children.

This holiday season event was made possible by The Student Council, moderated by Sister Barbara Doyle, CSJ, who organized the drive and made sure everything was ready for pick-up day.

St. Edmund Preparatory High School [2474 Ocean Ave. at Avenue T in Sheepshead Bay; (718) 743–6100].
