Operation Santa Claus Donations

We have received some information about sponsoring a family for Christmas. We need to have everything done by December 15th in order to get it to the Salvation Army for delivery early the following week.
Please don’t wrap anything as they prefer to leave it for the parents to do. You can bring any donated items to the Art room.

The organization has put a limit of $65 spent on each child.
Here is your family profile:

Single Mom with 4 Children

Girl – 14 years old, clothing size L, favorite color Red

Girl – 12, clothing size L, favorite color pink

Girl – 11, size M, color purple

Girl – 10, size M, color red.

Operation Santa Claus

In previous years, Bert Bowes Middle School has sponsored a family in need around Christmas time and this year we are looking to continue the tradition.

To raise money, we will be doing a raffle during the last week of November. A table will be set up outside of the Student Lounge throughout the week at lunch time where people can enter various draws. You can purchase 5 tickets for $2 and place them in whichever draw/prize jar you would like to win! Parents can even come in after school during Parent-Teacher Interviews and try their luck!

We will also be looking for other donations to help support this family for Christmas. Any help you can give will be appreciated. Students will get more information in the next few weeks.

Thank you!
