Santa for Seniors

During Red Ribbon week, (October 24-28) we will be collecting the following toiletry items: toothpaste, body wash, body lotion, deodorant, and shampoo. We are asking that these be full-sized bottles and not travel size.

We are supporting the annual Santa for Seniors Project. This is the 12th annual project to bring necessary toiletries to vulnerable York County seniors. A big thank you to the Boykin Property Group who have provided bags which we will fill with the necessary items as well as a handmade Christmas card. This year's goal is 700 bags - How many can OPES fill to help close this goal?? You do not need to bring in all 5 items. Any item will help! We will have drop off boxes at the front of our school for each grade level. The grade level that brings in the most items will earn a popcorn party!

Thank you for your support!
