WSD Holiday Assistance Program Underway
Would you like to bring a little holiday cheer to a WSD family? Each year in December the WSD Holiday Assistance Program helps to provide gifts for needy students and their families. Last year almost 350 families and more than 900 children received assistance in this charitable effort! The program, coordinated by the WSD Communications & Community Relations Department and school counselors, works with businesses, community groups, and individuals to help make the upcoming holidays more enjoyable for struggling families. In our schools, students and staff do a variety of things to raise money and collect gifts, and many families are adopted by their own caring school community. But there is always a need for additional community support.
If you or your family and friends would like to provide gifts for a family in need, families range in size from one child to seven children and donors can request what size family they would like to adopt. Donors also have the option of contacting the family directly and arranging to deliver gifts or dropping the gifts at the WSD Administrative Center, and we will coordinate getting the gifts to the donor’s adopted family.
