Thanks for the Food Donations!
Thanks to your support, we collected 27 turkeys, 1 ham, and 1 chicken to support the Thanksgiving Turkey Drive through the Larimer County Food Bank! A specials thanks goes to Mrs. Cala-Bartha, our local Girl Scouts, and former parent, Herbie Gordo, for all their help.
Meals that Matter
We are amazed once again at the generosity of the Werner Wildcats! The students brought in over 350 food items for Meals That Matter this month. The Kindergarten classes CRUSHED IT, bringing in 84 boxes of Mac and Cheese, while the 5th grade came in a close second donating 72 cans of fruit and vegetables.
It's moments like these that make our Werner community shine, and we couldn't be prouder of the generosity our students have shown to help others in need this holiday season.
Our best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
The Giving Tree 2023
Werner is partnering with Serve 6.8 again to host a Giving Tree for their Adopt-A-Family program. This is an opportunity to help families at Werner, and our community, who need a little bit extra during this holiday season.
How you can help
Stop by the office to pick up an ornament tag. Each ornament tag has an item that is needed or wished for by a child in our community. Purchase the gift, and return it to the office, unwrapped, with the ornament tag attached, by Friday, December 15.
Make a monetary donation to the office, which will go directly to Werner families.
Join our volunteer group on Dec 6 from 6-8 selecting and packing gifts for families at the Serve 6.8 warehouse in Loveland. Sign up here
Volunteer directly with Serve 6.8, who has options for various projects to help the over 2,500 families who benefit from the organization. Click here for info.
