CVA was abuzz with holiday activities. Take a peek at a few of them:

In a steady drizzle, the CVA Student Council delivered 50 cheer baskets to elderly residents in Mohawk and Ilion on Tuesday, Dec. 22. The Herkimer County Office for the Aging identified recipients and the student council members packed up the baskets and traveled by bus to each home.

On Saturday, Dec. 19, members of the CVA Alliance Group volunteered at the Rescue Mission in Utica wrapping Christmas gifts for 100 different families. The students were thrilled to donate their time to such a worthwhile cause.
