Toy and Food Drive
The first is a food drive for the Salvation Army. Our very own Sally Graser works closely with the Salvation Army and there is a definite need for any baby items; including food, formula and diapering supplies.
Our second drive is a Toy Drive. We are partnering with local agencies to collect new toys to be distributed to children in need throughout the region.
If your family is interested in donating, please send donations to school by Friday, December 15th and we will get the supplies routed to the perspective agencies.
