The holidays are about family and giving. Students learn about giving and connect with family.
Every December, just before the winter break, the PTC opens a special holiday store at the school. Every student gets to pick out two gifts for someone close to them. The store is filled with donations from the community and staffed by volunteers.
Every year the holiday store needs new gifts.
Our section of gifts for young children was very popular this year, and is a priority to refill. Donations here could include very small toys, coloring books, picture books, and puzzles.
Gifts for men are always needed. These might be small tools, coffee travel mugs, hats and gloves.
Less popular, but still needed are household items. Scented candles, picture frames and knick-knacks are good donations here.
