What is Holiday Helping?

Holiday Helping is a donation-based program that provides assistance to families in our community during the winter holiday season who need help with children’s clothing, household items (such as laundry soap, toothpaste, diapers), and educational items (such as books, family board games, or puzzles). Along with practical assistance, this tradition brings hope to those who receive the gifts. The foundation of this program is our generous community. Children in giving families put a focus on helping others.

How does it work

Families in need of assistance complete a request form. The Family Assistance Committee reviews the forms and prepares the Holiday Helping Snowmen, which are distributed school-wide.  Each snowman lists an item to be purchased and delivered unwrapped to the classroom.  Gifts are collected, sorted, and given to the families.

How can I help?

Watch for the Holiday Helping Snowman in your child’s backpack. If you purchase the gift on your snowman, please tape your snowman to the gift and return it to your child’s classroom.*

Thank you in advance for your participation in this program.  Helping each other builds a stronger and more caring community.
