Sharing Holiday Joy 2018

Sharing Holiday Joy 2018 will have three parts:

Gift Bags – School will identify students in need to receive gift bags; this year they have identified 42 students.
Volunteers needed to buy age-appropriate toy/gift, sweatshirt, and socks for each.
Please tell me how many students you can buy for.
We’ll provide you with a student # and their age & gender so you’ll know what to buy and we can keep the gifts organized.
Please be mindful that we want a variety of items; we wouldn’t want all these kids to show up at school the first day after Christmas conspicuously wearing the same sweatshirt.
Drop off unwrapped, purchased items at Faith Chapel on !2/6 – 12/7. I’ll provide more specific information on drop-off days/times tp donors when they get their specific buying information.
Gift-Wrapping on Dec. 9th at 1:00. I’ll provide gift wrap and gift bags.

Adopt-a Family – School to identify about 10 families that are especially in need.
Volunteers needed to buy gifts requested by the parents for their kids.
These gifts will be delivered to the parents (without their kids’ knowledge), so the parents can present the gifts to their kids.
Please tell me how many families you can buy for.
We’ll provide you with the wish list from the parents and a student # so we can keep the gifts organized.
Drop off unwrapped, purchased items at Faith Chapel during the week of 12/3 – 12/7. I’ll provide more specific information on drop-off days/times by Nov. 30th.

Holiday Party – A party at Lucketts Elementary School on Monday, Dec. 17th. Games, food, and a visit from Santa.
Volunteers needed for: food, games, decorations, clean-up
Book Drive: We are collecting new or used age Appropriate book for Santa to pass-out at the party.
