Lion Share

November 18, 2016

Love for Lions- 15 Sponsors Needed!

Longfellow's Holiday Gift Program is still in need of sponsors! If you are interested in sponsoring a Longfellow student for the holidays who may not otherwise receive gifts please sign up with the form below. We will send a confirmation email to you once we receive your submission.

Students selected for the program are interviewed for their 3 wants and 3 needs. Once we have the wish lists from students we will send it to you via email with details regarding gift drop off and labeling. All sponsored students remain confidential. The counseling department and Boy Scouts are able to provide families with a turkey, potatoes and groceries but we need your help with gifts!

Last year we were able to sponsor 118 students! We are on track this year to reach just as many but need your help!

Here is the link to sign up to sponsor a student:
