Bringing Christmas joy to McVinney students


Students at Bishop McVinney School, Providence, celebrated Christmas a week early as they received a special visitor to the school Monday morning. Santa Claus arrived in a firetruck accompanied by Providence firefighters and bearing gifts courtesy of the Gregg’s Restaurant Giving Tree Project, which collects and distributes gifts to 18 schools and organizations throughout Rhode Island. Eighth graders helped distribute the gifts to all students in preschool through grade eight while Santa Claus visited classrooms and offered Christmas wishes to the younger students.
