Holy Cross "rocks" for Christmas!


It’s the Holiday Season and gift giving is in the air! Although legend says only ‘bad’ little girls and boys get rocks in their Christmas stockings, the staff and students of Holy Cross Anglican School were recently delighted to receive tons of large rocks!! A local businessman, who wishes to remain anonymous, gave the School $2,810BZ to be used for land fill and suggested that rocks be purchased to provide a breakwater for the much needed sand. It was the businessman’s hope that his gift would encourage more folks in the San Pedro community to share their blessings with Holy Cross which offers low tuition, fees and a free feeding program to 512 children on the Island.

His generosity has already inspired Mr. Martin Martinez of Martin’s Boat Service to reduce his regular price of a boat load of rock and to volunteer his time in positioning the rocks. Mr. Martinez is shown above with several students from Holy Cross who are assisting in this project. In addition developer, Mr. Jeff Pierce has promised to fill three acres of School property as soon as the rocks are in place.

One gift can certainly inspire others and Holy Cross Anglican School is very thankful to the San Pedro businessman, Mr. Martin Martinez and Mr. Jeff Pierce. Donations of land fill, food for the Feeding Program, gently worn tennis shoes and cash contributions are always needed and greatly appreciated!!! Please contact the School Office at 226-3456 or Mr. Vernon Wilson at 610-3425 to share the blessings of this joyful season with the children of Holy Cross Anglican School.
