Barack Obama Elementary School
Home of the Stars
The St. Mary's Guild is once again coordinating a
"Winter Holiday Clothing Drive"
for the students of our neighborhood school,
Barack Obama Elementary School.

We would like to continue with this tradition by giving them items
on their wish list. They are always very very grateful for our
kindness and assistance especially at Christmas. Their needs are great but as winter approaches their clothes closet is especially of concern. Our collection is going to concentrate on hats, scarves, gloves, and socks
(of course other items are welcome)
Because of health concerns due to the pandemic, we can only collect new items and/or monetary donations. We will be collecting through January 16, 2022
Please make monetary donations payable to
St. Philip's Church and put “Winter Holiday Drive” in the memo.

How can a child learn if they are worried about being cold?
