Operation Santa Claus

The Bert Bowes Leadership Class has paired up with Fort St. John Big Brothers and Big Sisters and has adopted a local family for this Christmas. We are asking our Bert Bowes community to band together and help us give a deserving family an extra special Christmas! We are looking for items to be donated, or cash donations/gift cards are also welcome. Lists of items can be found on our website or we have lists posted all around the school! The Bert Bowes Leadership Class would like to extend a sincere thank you in advance for your generosity!!!
