This winter, the Christmas spirit is high with countless Christmas traditions keeping students in good spirits. The Holiday Boutique is no exception.
The Boutique is a new event this year organized by PAPA (Providence Academy Parent Association). The Boutique took place from December 12th to the 14th, before and after school. The event sold baked goods, jewelry, toys, and home apparel (among other things) in the living room area of the school. The items were donated by Providence families three weeks in advance.
The profits from the sales will be divided between PAPA and Interfaith Outreach in Plymouth, which is a local organization that helps Plymouth based families get back on their feet. Lisa Prom, one of the leaders of the Upper School PAPA, hoped for $2,000 to be raised.
The Boutique ran successfully with the help of student volunteers from the NHS. One of the volunteers, Cait Heaney ’19, said the
Boutique was, “such a good way to spread holiday cheer.”
Clara McMillan ’19 agreed, saying, “I like seeing the variety of things that people had during past Christmas seasons.”
The customers were excited and joyful in looking for gifts for themselves or for their loved ones.
