Kolbe Cathedral students perform community service throughout their four years of high school. Recently, a group of students and mentors volunteered at the Exchange Club of New Canaan Annual Christmas Tree Sale. For more than 50 years, the club transforms Kiwanis Park into a Christmas village with more than 1,300 trees along with a variety of wreaths, roping, tree stands and other seasonal merchandise. Funds raised at the event primarily support programs for the prevention of child abuse.
