Christmas is always a time of giving. To brighten the season for those in need, right here in our school, we are once again organizing the Christmas Angels program as well as a Christmas Hamper program at our school.
Angels, that will be hung on the Christmas Tree in the main office, will indicate the grade level/age of the receiving student. To participate in this initiative, simply take an Angel from the tree and purchase a unisex gift (suggested maximum of $30). Upon return, please attach the Angel to the gift and hand it to Darlene Brausen, our secretary, at the office.
The Angels will be available for pick-up from the tree as of December 6th and all gifts & Angels need to be returned to the school office on or before December 19th so that the gifts can be distributed to the students during the last week of school before the Christmas break; you can also donate gifts and/or gift cards at the office and these can be distributed towards the Angel program.
Hampers are put together at the school to include gifts for an entire family as well as all of the items for a Christmas Dinner. We strive to help as many families as possible depending on the amount of funds and/or items donated. If you would like to donate items and or monies to this initiative please e-mail Tina McDonald directly at firstname.lastname@example.org . You can also stop in at the school office and see Tina directly.
Donations and items for the hampers need to be into the school on or before December 12th so that they can be distributed to receiving families.
Thank you in advance for your help in making the season brighter for those in need!!
