Allie's Mitzvah Movies
Do you have any G, PG, or PG-13 movies in your house lying around in drawers that you don’t watch anymore? Support a KP student's desire to support Kid Flicks, a non-profit organization created by four sisters in California. This organization collects donated DVD movies from all over the United States and sends them to children’s hospitals and medical facilities. Allie will personally deliver one movie library to a children’s hospital in Connecticut. Please place your movies and monetary donations (checks made out to Kid Flicks) in the box in the main office labeled “Allie’s Mitzvah Movies”. Collections will be delivered every Thursday through November 5th. Let's help her reach her goal of 1,000 movies!
