THE HOLIDAY SEASON IS APPROACHING! GIVE BACK WITH OUR IN HOUSE CHARITY DRIVES AND OTHERS IN THE DALLAS AREA.
Warm Winter Tree
Our coat tree last year was such a success, we decided to do it again this year! We are so thankful that we have warm winter garments like jackets, coats, mittens, gloves, socks, and hats to stay warm throughout the season. However, some children and adults do not have this luxury.
We will have a “Winter Tree” set up in the lobby, and we are asking you to help us decorate it with warm winter clothing. Your toasty children’s or adult donations can be new or used but still in wearable condition.
Project Night Night
Though it might be more of a fight to get your kids to go to bed when they are older, the bedtime routine at the preschool age can be pretty fun. Reading and snuggling with your child at this age will probably be a highlighted memory as you one day ponder how the years have gone by so fast.
But, what if, through misfortune or disaster, a bedtime routine was anything but routine?
Project Night Night provides bedtime comforts for children of homeless families. Each night night sack is outfitted with a warm blanket, children’s book, and a new stuffed animal. The charity works with vendors to keep the cost per filled sack around $25, and we will be collecting money (rather than items) to give to them.
Both the warm winter tree and the Project Night Night box for coin or cash donations will be set out in the lobby starting Monday, November 12th through our last school day before Christmas break Friday, December 21st.
