MCS Holiday Giving Projects
Dear Montessori Community School Families,
Please find below a list of the Giving Projects that our classes have chosen to support this Holiday Season. We sincerely thank all of you who have already donated. If you have not had the opportunity and would still like to help any of these adults or children who have great need of support please feel free to donate to any of the projects. You may well be drawn to one more than another and we want you to know that anything you can give to any of these projects will be so gratefully received and will make a real difference in the recipients lives.
Oquirrh: Thanks to all of our parents and families who donated to our November charity, the YWCA!
Wasatch: We will be collecting items for children and teens at the Christmas Box House through Friday, December 13th. If you would like to help, we are looking for clothing, toys, books and athletic gear for youth and children. Thanks to all of our families who have shown their support!
Willows and Aspens: We are happy to announce that by your generous support, we have been able to collect a full bin of books for PCMC Hospital’s “Traveling Library.” A big Thank You goes out to parents and families who donated to this special charity. We will continue to collect books for the library through Friday, December 20th.
Toddlers: Help a refugee family in need make a new start here in Salt Lake City. This family is from Mynmar and has only been here only about a month.
We are still looking for items such as pajamas, underwear, sweaters and toys for the children (boy, age 3 and baby boy, age 1). Mom and Dad are also in need of sweaters and warm clothes (Mom, size S and Dad, size M). Please sign up outside the Suns Class to help this family in need.
Sequoias: We are collecting items of all sorts: clothing, hygiene items, educational toys, books and games for the Volunteers of America non-profit organization. They would be so grateful for any donations. Please see the list of suggested items outside our classroom next to the donation bin.
Magnolias: The Ghalley-Sarki Family, from Bhutan (Mother is 23, with son 6 and daughter, 2)
A refugee family from Bhutan is in great need of a necessary living articles- new and gently used.
Please look through your wardrobes if you have extra warm clothing (socks, coats, sweaters) in childrens’ (6/7) and toddlers’ (2/3) sizes; and clothes for Mom (age 23)- size Small. We are also hoping to provide children’s toys, ie: basketball or soccer ball, and other educational games/toys. Household items: pots and pans, and hygiene items are also needed.
We thank the families who have donated, and we hope that we can collect many more items before Friday, December 20th. Any item you are able to donate will make such a difference to this family.
To help, please sign up indicating which items you would like to donate on the list outside the Magnolias classroom!
Middle School: Our students are collecting coats, in particular adult size coats for the Road Home. These can be new or gently used. With the freezing temperatures that we are experiencing lately you can imagine how hard it would be if you did not have a coat to keep you warm.
