Lacrosse And Hockey Programs Team Up To Give Back This Christmas

The Lacrosse and Hockey programs at Catholic Central High School have teamed up to support two important organizations this Christmas: The Sanctum House and the Michigan Animal Rescue League (MARL).   

The Sanctum House is a voluntary, two-year program for women over 18 who are victims of human trafficking. The program currently houses over two dozen women, providing trauma-informed healthcare and individualized resources in a safe and secure environment to help survivors build a better future.  

A human trafficking survivor from Sanctum House visited Catholic Central on October 23 to talk to students in Mr. Dave Wilson’s Contemporary Social Issues class. Mr. Wilson is also the Head Coach for CC’s Lacrosse team.  

Examples of items on the Sanctum House wish list include: 

  • Coffee 

  • Paper towels, trash bags, and toilet paper 

  • Cleaning products, such as dish detergent, laundry detergent, and hand soap  

  • Personal care items, such as body lotions and sprays, curling irons, brushes, and shampoo 

  • Warm clothing, such as robes, pajamas, slippers, leggings, boots, and coats 

  • Gift cards 

Mr. Wilson asks that all donations be made by December 1. All gifts are going to Mrs. Maureen Gatt, who sorts the presents and takes them to the house. The link for the SignUp Genius link for the Sanctum House can be found here: Mrs. Gatt: Sanctum House (

The Lacrosse and Hockey teams are also assisting the Michigan Animal Rescue League (MARL) by collecting a variety of items for the animals in their care, in conjunction with Chiropractor Dr. Will Civello of Novi.

  • Wet cat and dog food – any brand
