~GIVING TREE LETTER~
Thank you for helping us serve over 600 families for our Holiday Store and pantry in December. As the new year arrives, many of us think of organizing and cleaning up from the Holidays to start fresh in the new year. For this reason this month we are collecting household cleaning products that we can have available at pantry. Please feel free to send donations in a plastic bag with your students to put in the collections bins/carts near the main office of school. Items can also be dropped off during school hours. The Giving Tree appreciates your continued support.
