Live, Laugh, Learn, Leave a Legacy
Dear Patterson Families,
Each year Patterson Elementary partners with the PRIDE community to support CUSD families through our holiday tradition, the Snowflake Giving Tree. This year, our Patterson 5th grade students are coordinating this generous Pay It Forward project. The Giving Tree will be located in the Patterson office and decorated with snowflakes. Each snowflake will list a holiday gift item intended for children ages birth-18 years old by age range. If your family wishes to participate, please select a snowflake(s) from the Giving Tree which will be in the reception area of the Patterson office. Purchase the listed item and attach the snowflake to the unwrapped gift you have purchased and return it to the office.
Gifts collected will be dispersed to Chandler students via the Chandler Care Center’s Holiday Toy Drive event. All donated items support families in the Chandler Unified School District. Patterson works in tandem with the Chandler Fire Department, who also serves as a drop off location for the donated toys. The Fire Department delivers our donations to the Care Center.
Snowflake Giving Tree runs from December 1st through December 13th.
Return unwrapped gifts to the office by December 13th
Over the past four years, Patterson has contributed over 500 gifts to the Care Center’s toy drive. We encourage all to participate and thank you for your generosity – working together, the PRIDE staff and community provides inspiration and holiday kindness for those in need.
