Our annual Northwood holiday drive kicked off this Thursday with a visit to the giving tree at Susan’s Bannan coffee fundraiser. Thank you to Susan for hosting and to all who were able to attend and support this Northwood tradition!
The holiday fundraiser has been a school program for many years. It first was started to support local charities and was brought home to Northwood families during the recession in the 2000s. In addition to the giving tree with specific gift tags, this year we created a SignUp Genius to support the cause. For next year we plan to also have an evening activity as we want everyone to have the opportunity to support our Northwood families while throwing in some holiday celebrating!
There are still gift tags available so contact Jennifer Beljak (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jessica Sparkes (email@example.com) if you would like to donate a gift. Also, the SignUp Genuis is another chance to make donations of gift cards (gas, Meijer, etc.) or cash for the needs of each family. All donations can be delivered via your child’s green folder Attention: Community Affairs or directly to the main office. Deadline for donations is this Friday, December 11 to allow time to pull everything together to share with our families for the holidays.
Please remember our Northwood community when considering your holiday giving this year.
