The Angel Tree Project
(We will accepting gifts in the school this week and also in the foyer at the MMH Christmas GALA on the evening of Thursday, December 11th from 5:30-7:30pm)
MMH is Caring & Sharing!
As a school-wide service project again this year, we are encouraging the students of MMH to consider donating to those less fortunate in our community. We will be collecting both unwrapped Christmas gifts and gift cards for families in need until Thursday, December 11th. Gifts will be donated to the Angel Tree project, and some may also be delivered to the local shelter for women & children and to new immigrants to our city, depending on the need and response.
In order to personalize this project, you may consider having your child choose something appropriate for a child of their own age & gender in our city who may not receive any gifts for Christmas if it were not for our choice to share & provide for those less fortunate than ourselves. Gifts for both genders, from birth to age 18, are most welcome.
Because younger children are chosen more often from the trees around the city, there is aparticular need for gift cards for older children – Park Place Mall, Walmart, Chapters, Best Buy, EB Games, iTunes, Ardene & Claire`s, Bert & Macs/Sport Chek, and we are also gratefully accepting grocery store & department store gift cards to help provide families with delicious & nutritious holiday food and warm clothing. Of course, gifts for the parents of these families would also be helpful – often requested are gifts cards for Canadian Tire, Home Depot, Walmart, Starbucks/Tim Hortons etc. Special requests received from many children include Lego (6-14 years), Art & Craft sets (3-18 years), Pokémon cards, action figures/super heroes, makeup kits/nail polish, Frozen themed toys and warm pajamas & winter clothing.
**You do not need to pick an angel from a tree for this project.
Simply drop off your unwrapped gift and/or any gift cards to your child’s teacher or to Mrs. Baker
(in room 22 across from the office) by December 11th.
Thank you in advance for any support you are able to provide us for this valuable project.
