RICHMOND, Mass. — Giving is not a seasonal thing at Richmond School — the school community makes a point to help those in need all year round.   But the holiday season is a special time and this year the school community participated in two holiday drives among its other charitable initiatives.    "I think it is the most important outcome for our kids is to give back and I think the kids enjoy doing it," Principal Monica Zanin said last week.
