Every year we do the "Mall Night Lock-in" We bring money in (students bring allowance and some families give cash) and we split it evenly between all the students, then break into teams and go shop at the mall for families who are in need of groceries and gifts.
This year through, the same program we have been using for years has decided to make a HUGE jump in our giving and I have faith you can help us.
We have committed to sponsoring an entire Junior High School of 105 students - with one gift for every student. We will received each teen's wish list and we will proceed the same way we have every other year.
This year we will not be collecting grocery gift cards but
we will be buying gifts for over 50 more people than normal
For more information about the school, please click on the link below!
Sacred Heart Nativity School and Our Lady of Grace Nativity School
Student Demographics: 100% Latino, 94% eligible for Free or Reduced Lunch Program
“Breaking the cycle of poverty through education"
THINK WE CAN DO IT JYM?
This year we are also providing gift bags to go along with each individual present, and we would love your help with that!
If you can provide any of the items below, please e-mail Kat at firstname.lastname@example.org
with a heads up. Otherwise the JYM will purchase these items.
Can you donate....
10 packs of 5ct ballpoint pens
10 packs of 5ct pencils
15 spiral bound notebooks
10 Silly Putty or Slime capsules
20 Chapstick tubes
If you buy any of these items and they do not come in the number specified above, that is fine! We will take anything :)
We need enough to make 105 gift bags
to go along with the presents we give to the students.
Parents, we still need help with this event - especially with chaperoning the sleepover part of it!! If you are a male who can spend the night from 10:00pm Fri Dec. 1st - 9:00am Sat Dec 2nd, or have any questions about what that entails, please e-mail Kat at email@example.com
