Mitten Project – Helping Doyle Families in Need

Staff and students of Doyle Elementary School will be participating in a “Giving Project” again this year. Our goal is to provide food and gifts for Doyle families who need extra support.

Starting December 5, there will be a display of colorful paper mittens on the wall inside the main entrance of Doyle. Each mitten describes a special gift for a child or adult who is a recipient of the project. If your family would like to purchase a gift for this project, please stop in and visit Doyle to select a mitten. After you take a mitten, you should buy the gift item listed, wrap it, and attach the mitten to the gift, so that it can be distributed properly. All donated gifts need to be brought to Doyle by Thursday, December 15, 2022. If your family would rather donate a monetary gift, please make checks payable to the Doyle Elementary School Activity Account and write “Mitten Project” in the memo. This money will be used to purchase extra food items or other gifts, as needed.

Thank you for your support in making an effort to help members of our Doyle community. If you have any questions, please call Tracy Kowalchick at 267-893-4335
