Ennis ISD Administration Assists with Salvation Army Christmas Toy Delivery
Toys and gifts from the Salvation Army were delivered to the First United Methodist Church this week for distribution to families who signed up for Christmas assistance earlier this fall.
As a result of countless donations, over 100 children will receive toys and clothes. EISD administrators assisted in the unloading of the boxes and sacks that will be distributed to families for the holiday. Thanks to everyone who assisted in this effort.
Wishing you all the joys of the season and the best in the coming year. Merry Christmas from all of us at Ennis ISD.
This year's Ennis ISD Christmas card cover artwork was provided by contest winner Deisy Gonzalez (12th Grade Explorative Arts Student, Ms. Cheryl Kelly's class).
