Members of the Mount Saint Mary Academy community donated bundles of children’s toys and gift cards to aid those in need at Project PAUL in Keansburg. Isabel Gachko, director of Theology and campus minister, reported $840 in gift cards were collected. Freshmen began bringing in gifts on Dec. 1 at the academy’s semi-formal, and the drive concluded on Dec. 11 when a representative from Project PAUL picked up the donations.
