Throughout November and December, Seton Hill students, faculty and staff coordinated and supported a variety of events to assist local community members this holiday season. Projects included:
- two giving trees that provided gifts for children served by the Jeannette Salvation Army and the Children’s Bureau of Westmoreland County.
- Operation Christmas Basket, an annual auction/market of donated items with proceeds supporting local agencies and fund drives, including the Blackburn Center, the Westmoreland County Food Bank and Catholic Charities.
- the hosting of the Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Laurel Region's Christmas Party on-campus by the Coach Quigley Project of Seton Hill's Communication Program.
