Duration of the volunteer activity: 
Number of international students:

Number of ESNers involved: 
The activity was a success. I already have some feedbacks from international students and families who shared a wonderful time together during Christmas holidays. The event should be prepared at least a month before the beginning of the event to be sure there is no surprise (for my part I had 7 students who withdrew, just 3 days before Christmas for some of them. Hence, some families didn't have any student with them.
