We have created a themed basket for each grade in elementary, middle school, and two for high school. Please take a look and see if you can help! There are bins in each school office where items can be brought. You can purchase and donate the item or you can ask for donations from businesses. Every $20 you spend can be counted as one volunteer hour. Any questions? Email us at
You are welcome to reach out to us if you’d like to get items directly to me also.
