USO Food Drive
Every year around the holidays our school community collects Publix Gift Cards to donate to our local USO. This year we are collecting Gift Cards from November 27th – December 7th.
On December 7th our Elementary students will go to Publix with the Gift Cards to purchase food for our local USO families. This community outreach is a wonderful learning experience for our students as they learn about giving to others in need, while also learning about putting a meal together, budgets, the value of coupons, generic versus name brand, buy one, get one, etc. The students will then officially donate the purchases to the USO in time for the holidays.
Last year we raised over $1,200 worth of groceries, with our Publix receipt measuring 22 ft. in length!
Adopt a Family
Each year our classrooms are assigned a family in need to purchase clothing, toys and other basic essentials for the holidays. To help your classrooms adopted family; there will be a sign-up sheet on December 3rd & 4th. Items purchased should be dropped off by December 10th in order to reach the families in time for the holidays.
