Giving Tree at Redington!
Again this year we are one several Mat-Su schools that are hosting Giving Trees for the Mat-Su Special Santa Program. Our focus is to provide teen gift items and stocking stuffers for teens who may otherwise not receive any gifts this season. The Giving Tree is in the front office and has tags on it with gift suggestions, but other gift items may be donated as well. Gift donations are to be unwrapped and new (not used). Let’s show our Redington Husky holiday giving spirit and fill the front office with gifts for teens!
